My Northeast: A Snapshot of Kansas City’s Historic Northeast Community
John Herbst, a retired librarian of the Kansas City Public Library and a long-time supporter of the Museum, conceived of and inspired a traveling exhibit on the Northeast out of his deep passion and pride for the Northeast and the Kansas City Museum. John has shared his memories and experiences of the Northeast to ensure that its rich and “magical” history will be preserved for generations to come. This exhibit comes in four retractable banner panels; please see below for the first panel. The exhibit is presented by the Kansas City Museum with generous support provided by John Herbst.
