Negro League Site Nearly Restored
February 7, 2017
Historic KC Negro League site nearly restored. Former YMCA to become Buck O'Neil Education and Research Center.
On February 13, 2017 the NLBM will host a private hard-hat sneak peek at the renovated Paseo YMCA, which, will be known as the Buck O'Neil Education and Research Center. The project is suspected to be completed sometime later this year.
"It will be something the entire community will utilize and enjoy," Kendrick said. "We'll have computers, research centers, archives of black history-- everything that Buck had envisioned."
Numerous individuals contributed to the buildings revival, including Ollie Gates (of the famous Gates Barbecue) and Julia Irene Kauffman, who is on the Kansas City Royals' Board of Directors.
