Kansas City has so many wonderful new and old places to visit. I had a wonderful experience when I visited the Webster House antique shop and restaurant. Built in 1885 and closed in 1932, the building is one of Kansas City’s oldest public schools. It has been restored and looks beautiful. As we had lunch on the second floor, I looked out the window and saw a very unique site; the Kauffman center for Performing Arts is in the final stages of construction. It’s a futuristic design that will be the official home of the Lyric Opera, the Kansas City Ballet, and the Kansas City Symphony. It will also be the setting for numerous other groups and events. I was sitting in the past and looking at the future of Kansas City. The past and present are working together to make Kansas City’s future unique.
