Notable Neighbors, Kirkwood

This, the lead of our regular personality profile in T&S’ first issue of the New Year, is brought to you by the letter ‘K’: Kathy Schrenk of Kirkwood. She’s completed two books for active, curious people like herself—a guidebook on hiking/biking the Katy Trail and another on hiking with kids. Now, she’s released a paperback on Kirkwood. She and her family have lived in and explored Kirkwood, notably considered to be the first planned community west of the Mississippi, for the last decade. Kirkwood—A Walk through History demonstrates how wonderful strolling through it is, and walkability was at the top of the list of things Schrenk and her brood were searching for when they moved here from the San Francisco Bay Area in 2013.
