Wow! Super News!

We heard this afternoon that the Johnson County Commissioners approved a plan to purchase the old King Louie West site on Metcalf to provide for the first museum in the USA dedicated to Suburbia. Johnson County KS is a perfect example of housing and commerce growth after WWII, especially the glory days of the 1950's and 1960's. We salute the Commission's vision and throw our support to the Johnson County Museum, their great staff and the future of the past...

I am so glad to hear this. I knew they were thinking about it and just put King Louie West on my Pinterest Mid-Cen board.
