- Founded in 1919, the Liberty Memorial was established to honor those who fought and lost their lives during World War I. The City of Kansas after the war wanted a medium through which they could pay their respects and showcase the cruelty of the same. In a two week public drive, it raised over USD2.5 million and built the Libery Memorial. The Memorial is divided into a North Wall, Exhibit and Memory Halls, a Sphinx and a 217 feet Memorial Tower. Carvings across the walls depict the story of the war and its various transitional phases. The list of sculptures increases as there is also a Pantheon replica which was donated to the Memorial. Also housed inside is a Memorial Store.
