The Legacy of Kansas City’s Hare & Hare
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day.
To most local landscape architects, Hare & Hare is a household name. The firm has left an indelible mark on some of the most iconic and often-visited areas of Kansas City—the Country Club Plaza, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Loose Park, Ward Parkway, and Mission Hills among them.
Father-and-son collaborators Sid and Herbert Hare were part of a synergistic design team assembled by legendary Kansas City developer J.C. Nichols that was internationally recognized for its excellence.
Their 100-year-old legacy is commemorated in this new exhibit.
