History is all around us in the Kansas City area.

The two-sided, full-color map features addresses, phone numbers, web site listings and short descriptions of each member’s site. You can receive a copy by mailing us a self-addressed envelope (click here).

You can also utilize the interactive history map (here) – complete with all the same locations and descriptions as the physical paper map.

Established in 1980, the Heritage League is a non-profit, membership organization representing museums and agencies dedicated to the preservation of our cultural heritage.

The League is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of fifteen institutional and individual representatives involved in historical agencies in and around Kansas City. The Heritage League sponsors workshops to improve professional practices in area agencies, public events to heighten community awareness of historical agencies and issues affecting them, and social events to provide networking opportunities among those working in area organizations.
