CIVIC AFFAIRS IN KANSAS CITY: ESTABLISHING THE “18TH AND VINE” AS A HISTORICAL AREA
Kansas City

Image by roberthuffstutter
Mayor Richard Berkley and community officials and organizers celebrate the progress being made in establishing the "18th and Vine" area of Kansas City, Missouri as an historical district.
This photo was taken by one of my friends and business associates with whom I attended numerous civic events in the Kansas City metro area during the 1980s.

The area has become a very successful tourist attraction and is full of historical galleries, centers and features related to ethnic nature of the area during the past century. Since then, numerous other areas have grown in and around the area and have further broadened the interests of the initial project. Kansas Citian are deserving of the pride in their community; it has improved the overall economy of the entire downtown area of Kansas City.
