KC History: Nelle Nichols Peters
On December 11, 1884, Nelle Nichols Peters was born to a farming family in Niagara, North Dakota. Despite her legacy as one of the most prolific architects in Kansas City during the 1920s, designing nearly 1,000 local buildings, Peters remains a somewhat obscure figure.
