Liberty Memorial, Kansas City: 20 reviews and 63 photos
The Liberty Memorial was designed by New York architect H. Van Buren Magonigle in a severe and austere monumental style. (It's not exactly Classical; perhaps neo-Egyptian?) I have to admit that I am fond of its severity and austerity, which I think are entirely appropriate for its subject matter.
Not too many people in the US know about World War I anymore, however, and the difficult thing for the Liberty Memorial's preservers has been getting enough people to care about it in order to ensure that there are enough funds for it to be maintained.
