Peggy, I bet you'd be more surprised by what hasn't changed than what has. Most of the buildings there were built while Theodore Roosevelt was President. Almost nothing else has changed since I first came along, except that an area known as the "International Village:, which was really just a series of stalls set up for selling trinkets, was replaced by a huge auditorium, big enough to hold rodeos, monster truck shows, football games and concerts.
I haven't been that familiar with Kansas City for all that long, but I know that just since I've been here, Lee's Summit has really built eastward along the highway, and the area between Kansas City and Independence has swallowed up a lot of orchards and farmland. John
