Richardson-Graham Bridge, Northeast Kansas City

Richardson-Graham Memorial Bridge  ( also still called Anderson Bridge ). Built in 1897 it never had a formal name.  Five years ago the Park Board voted to name it for Dr. Katherine Berry Richardson, a surgeon, and Dr. Alice Berry Graham, a dentist.  The same year the bridge was built the Doctors founded Children's Mercy Hospital; their first beds were on the third floor of their home on North Clinton Place at Windsor.   The home still stands and is in fine shape.
