• Welcome to Historic Kansas City

    Welcome

    Every day, all year long, HKC works to revitalize historic structures that give our community visible connections to its past and lends irreplaceable visual character to the streetscape. Once a year, we announce the Most Endangered, a list of historic places on the brink of extinction and too important to lose. These places shape lives, and when they’re gone, they leave a void that can’t be filled. See our 2020-21 list HERE.
