The National Archives at Kansas City is one of eleven field locations within the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), and TWP’s BLVE will be touring the We the People exhibit, Friday afternoon, February 23. We the People highlights the millions of records that give insight into the lives of ordinary people. Nearly all Americans can find themselves, their neighbors, their ancestors, or their community in the records of the National Archives. In addition, a facsimile of the United States Constitution is included in the exhibit. Group tour participants will also:
• learn about the National Archives as an independent Federal agency;
• discover the architectural significance and history of the Adams Express building which houses the National Archives at Kansas City; and
• view the paintings and hear about the artist, who produced the twin Art Deco murals created for the Works Progress Administration that hang on the walls in the facility.
