Fakten

  • The Civic Center is a product of infamous Kansas City political boss Tom Pendergast who many say "ran the city" during prohibition in the 1930s from his nondescript office in a two-story building just a few blocks away.
  • In keeping with the Pendergast legend of doing everything in a grandioso style, the Jackson County Courthouse and the Kansas City, Mo., City Hall were said to be the tallest such city and county government buildings in the world.
  • A book entitled, "Tom's Town" (still in publication) is considered the best biography about Pendergast and how his concrete company got the contracts on such public projects in 1930's Kansas City, Mo.
