New From Kansas City Star Books
A Unique and Beautiful History of Kansas City
Perhaps NOWHERE in our community does the Kansas City story unfold more poignantly than in the life stories of the people buried in historic Elmwood Cemetery. Their stories trace Kansas City from its earliest days as a frontier town, through boom years when railroads first rumbled across the Missouri River, and into the 20th century, when stockyards flourished and downtown buildings muscled their way onto the skyline.
“Elmwood Cemetery: Stories of Kansas City” will take you on a rich journey of discovery as 24 local authors and photographer Bruce Mathews bring to life the stories of people who helped to build our community.
Proceeds from sales of the book will be donated to the Elmwood Cemetery Society.
