Historic 9th – Moveable Feast
Have you ever wondered about the history of Kansas City’s downtown districts and wanted to learn more?
Well now you can!
The HISTORIC 9TH – MOVEABLE FEAST is a Historic Kansas City fundraising event held to bring awareness to the historic 9th street corridor. It will include a walking tour of 9th Street showcasing 3 prominent buildings, cocktails and food by the Savoy Restaurant, raffle drawing. Come learn about the history of Historic 9th Street corridor in Kansas City while sipping cocktails at some of Kansas City’s most beautiful buildings. This area significantly represents a microcosm of urban life, as reflected through the history and usage of the buildings which line its prominent thoroughfares in Downtown Kansas City. Much of the development of the area occurred during the beginnings of the great 1880s Ninth Street Construction Boom, which ended with the Panic of 1893 and the depression that ensued. The corridor includes an architectural vocabulary of buildings ranging from high style designs spanning Neo-Classicism to Modernism, and to the classic tow and three-part vertical block, with conformity in articulation, size and scale. We will be starting and ending our drinking tour at the 21c Hotel formally known as The Savoy. As your guide leads the way, you will travel to three buildings that will serve libations and a custom appetizer menu from Chef Joe West. As you walk the streets, listen as your guide tells you the history of 9th Street and at the three locations you will be treated to an in-depth architectural history of the buildings. You will stop at the Savoy, Kansas City Club, and New York Life Building.
Come walk the streets, view the architecture and learn about Historic 9th Street while sipping cocktails at some of Kansas City’s most beautiful buildings.
