1. History

Southwest Boulevard originated as two roads, one being the main street of Rosedale, Kansas, when it was platted in 1872 as "Kansas City Avenue", and the second called "The Rosedale Road", or "Kansas City Boulevard", on the Missouri side. Two property owners provided land to link the two roads in 1887, and the entire road was later renamed as "Southwest Boulevard." One of those landowners was Simeon Bell, who later donated the land upon which Eleanor Taylor Bell Hospital was built on Southwest Boulevard, and which housed the University of Kansas medical school until the 1920s. The Rosedale-Kansas portion of the road was originally macadamized, and was paved in 1915.

Part of the road used to be signed as U.S. 69 until the 18th Street Expressway was completed in the 1950s.
