In the mid-19th century, the West Bottoms in Kansas City was the original downtown, the economic epicenter of a thriving cattle enterprise and one of the largest livestock exchanges in the world.
But fortunes change and time moves on. And this once derelict area is now home to a burgeoning and vibrant neighborhood. Art fairs, flea markets, coffee shops and eclectic dining dot the streets alongside antique and home furnishing stores.
The West Bottoms is a work-in-progress, an adventure waiting to be had. It’s quirky, trendy, creative, unexpected and full of potential. West Bottom Flats is the perfect opportunity to experience the neighborhood and be a part of its new history.
