Kenmore becomes a city

Citizens of Kenmore celebrate the incorporation of their city in August, 1998 with a parade along Northeast 181st Street during the Good Ol’ Days Festival. This small delegation of local residents carried a message from one of the community’s namesakes—Kenmore, Scotland. The new city had a population of nearly 18,000 people.
