Kansas City History Burns Overnight

Another local disaster worth a look:

Fire destroys historic home at Shoal Creek Living History Museum

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Firefighters aren't sure if lightning started a fire that destroyed a historic house in the Northland overnight. That fire started around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Shoal Creek Living History Museum in Hodge Park. The flames destroyed the Stollings house, which was built in the late 1800s.

Replace it with a taxpayer subsidized luxury big box apartment over retail.

If you folks in Shoal Creek were only black we could get the city to pump millions into your project up there, but with your white privilege, and since you don't qualify for entitlements, you are just screwed. Good Luck!

These are not HOMES.... They're PROPS. Every building on that property is a PROP.

Thanks parks and rec for not putting the lightning protection system I recommended years ago to protect this historic property but since your smarter than us peons this is what the tax payers end up with...... a big irreplaceable pile of ashes

Ben Franklin pushed the installation of Lightening Rods starting in the 1780s, maybe they wouldn't clash too badly with your 1850s-1860s overall theme.
