18th and Vine

18th and Vine is one of Kansas City’s most historic neighborhoods; it was where you could see Charlie Parker performing or run into famous baseball players like Satchell Paige.

The area has changed quite a bit since then. Now you can find museums dedicated to Jazz and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

This building, The Jazz District Apartment Building, has a sign marking the entrance to the 18th and Vine district.
