The Wonderful World Of Westport

October 19, 2010

Libraries aren’t just about books. 

Dr. Ron Miriani, retired Professor of History, conducted a walking tour called Westport: The Town That Re-Invents Itself on October 9. The group met at Kelly’s Westport Inn, a designated national historical landmark, and stopped at over 30 locations, including Harris Hotel and Pioneer Park. 

Patrons explored the little known history of Kansas City’s oldest establishment, Westport. The adventure culminated with a tour of the Harris-Kearney House given by the Westport Historical Society.
