On the left is the iconic Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in downtown. Behind the center are the pylons of Bartle Hall and the gold dome of the Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
In the center is Webster House with bell tower, an antique-filled store and restaurant in a restored Romanesque-style school from 1885. The Webster School was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 2, 1982.
The water in the fountain is dyed blue in honor of the local professional baseball team. Kansas City has more fountains than any city in the world except Rome, Italy, and is officially known as the City of Fountains. Community Christian Church, the low white building in the background, featured blue exterior lights in place of its usual white ones. The church was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
A framed print of a replica rocket hangs in this hallway display. The photograph shows the replica rocket standing on the roof of a building in the Crossroads Arts Districts of Kansas City, Missouri. The replica, with the name of a now defunct airline, is a smaller version of a rocket that once stood in a popular west coast amusement park.
