About Kansas City

Kansas City was first established by French fur traders who paddled down the Missouri River. The city later became critical during the Civil War due to its proximity to Westport, the site of one of the bloodiest face-offs west of the Mississippi. Throughout the late 19th century and the roaring 1920s, our city experienced remarkable prosperity and commercial growth, and Kansas City also stood out as a center of American art and sport – jazz and baseball. The city now boasts a population of 491,158 residents and world-renowned sites including the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, and the National WWI Museum and Memorial home to the Liberty Memorial. We are proud to serve a city steeped in such rich American culture and history.
