The Liberty Memorial is Kansas City's tribute to its citizens who gave their lives in the service of America during the World War. Designed by Harold Van Buren Magonigle, the great stone monument occupies a commanding site on Memorial Hill over looking the Union Station. From its great shaft, rising over 300 feet above the surrounding city, a pillar of fire burns brightly at night.
