Webster House

The prominent, distinctive bell tower of the Webster House stands tall with Liberty Memorial high on a hill in the background.  The building opened in 1886 and is one of the oldest remaining public school buildings in Kansas City.  It closed in 1932 and was renovated in 2000.  It now stands in the shadow of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (directly behind me when I snapped this pic) and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places where it serves as a shopping and dining destination in the Crossroads Arts District.
