— Kansas City Landmark —

When Alexander Majors completed this house and its accompanying, but now demolished barns and pens, it formed a trading terminus for the firm of Russell, Majors and Waddell. By 1858 the firm was responsible for a force of 3,500 wagons carrying freight to the southwest. Annual transactions of more than $2,000,000 clearly stimulated the area's economy.
