 Brief History:

Platte County is a county located in the northwestern portion of the U.S. state of Missouri and is part of the
 Kansas City metropolitan area.  Its county seat is Platte City. The county was organized December 31, 1838, from the
 Platte Purchase, named for the Platte River.
 Platte is derived from the French word for a low, shallow, or intermittent stream. The Kansas City International Airport
 is located in the county, approximately one mile west of Interstate 29 between mile markers 12 and 15. The land for the
 airport was originally in an unincorporated portion of Platte County before being annexed by Platte City, and eventually
 Kansas City.
