Kansas City is often seen as a "cow town" with great barbecue and steaks. But it is also a city with more boulevards than Paris and more working fountains than Rome. There are burial mounds that date back more than two thousand years. The National World War I Museum and Memorial, opened in 1926, stands more than two hundred feet tall. Leila's Hair Museum has a collection that brings tourists from all over the nation. The Kansas City Jazz Museum features a historic district and world-class museum that document a time when dance halls, cabarets, speakeasies and even honky-tonks and juke joints fostered the development of a new musical style. Join author Paul Kirkman as he cuts a trail past the stockyards into the heart of America--Kansas City.
