Notes
Survey number HABS MO-266
Building/structure dates: 1937 initial construction
Significance: The City Hall is the tallest and most obvious of a three building construction program passed in 1931 by the people of Kansas City. The overall bond program was labeled the "Ten-Year-Plan," and offered the vision of stability, progress and faith in the future to counter the effects of the Great Depression. The building's architecture, though neo-classic or beaux-arts in plan and massing, introduces the elements of the moderne or art deco movement in its detail and ornament.
