Question: What happened to the really cool looking city hall at 5th and Main?
Answer by Michael Wells, Missouri Valley Special Collections Librarian
Really cool looking is definitely an accurate description of Kansas City’s second City Hall building. To gain a better sense of what’s so cool about it, I began by consulting architectural historian George Ehrlich’s Kansas City, Missouri: An Architectural History, 1826-1990.
