Book Information

The Kansas City Historic Preservation Commission announces the release of Kansas City: A Place in Time, second edition. Overseen by the city’s Historic Preservation Officer, Bradley Wolf, A Place in Time features the work of local historians, writers and photographers and highlights more than 350 key residential and commercial structures found throughout the city.

The book includes overviews of six Kansas City areas: Northland, Downtown-Westside-Northeast, Crossroads-Midtown-Westport, Country Club-Brookside-Waldo, East Side-Swope, and Martin City-Hickman Mills-Little Blue Valley. The book also includes detailed street maps showing the locations of each profiled structure, making it a handy, compact guide to keep in the glove box or carry on an architectural tour. To read its pages is to replay Kansas City’s rich, deep history, block by block, street by street.

This guidebook is an extensive amalgam of the architecture and history of Kansas City, Missouri. It is intended not merely to describe isolated structures of historic importance in Kansas City, but also to chronicle the flow of time and people by what they left behind.
