“Nelson-Atkins Museum, Kansas City, Indiana” in 1930 by architecture firm Wight and Wight, consisting of the brothers Thomas (1874-1949) and William (1882-1949). The neoclassic structure was made of warm buff limestone with a rosy cast, quarried in Nelson’s home state of Indiana. William Rockhill Nelson (1841-1915) was a real estate developer and founder of newspaper The Kansas City Star. He donated his estate (and home) for the establishment of the Museum.
