As progress continues to move onward and upward throughout Kansas City, there will always be places left behind. From the industrial to residential and many places in between, all these structures have more stories to tell.
Each one of these locations are smaller steppingstones in the foundation of Kansas City’s establishment, and share the commonality of being left empty. Their original purposes are diverse, with timelines going back as far as the 1890s.
In addition to some interesting and obscure backstories, this book takes an in-depth look inside all these buildings that many of us have driven by and wondered about for years, in a widespread montage of photography that details as much as possible.
In this second instalment of Abandoned Kansas City, more of the forgotten is brought into the light.
