    River Quay Building Sign - The River Quay went from a creaky relic of 19th century to a hip and happening center for culture and nightlife when it was redeveloped in the early 1970's. A mob connected entrepreneur - Freddie Bonadonna invested heavily in the Quay. Another mobster (William Cammisano) fought for control. It eventually exploded in a series of bombings, arsons and shootings. By 1977, it was an eerie urban landscape of boarded-up and bombed out buildings - a monument to mob war.

    Pioneer Mother Memorial (located in Kansas City's Penn Valley Park) - was dedicated in 1927, to reflect the spirit of all pioneer mothers. It is located near the points where the Santa Fe trail and Oregon Trails originated. Its subject is also worthy of a memorial, as many of the brave women who embarked on such journeys endured considerable hardship.
