Father of Kansas City
Today, it’s known as Westport. It’s a place known for attracting a younger set complete with niche restaurants, bars and live music.

Historically when we think of legacy, we tend to think of it as the amount of money we’ll leave to heirs. Money is the easiest kind of legacy to leave but generally it is the least valuable. To the contrary, it’s the richness of values and virtue that make a legacy powerful. Legacy is for the famous. Just because you are not in the…Read More
