The elegant room shown below was the ballroom for all the buildings incarnations. Today it is the Sawyer Room and is popular for weddings and other events. Each of the windows in the room has a unique design/logo in the center. I'm assuming those date to the Athletic Club Days and are logos for different teams.... although if someone knows for sure help me out!
President Truman used the club regularly before, during and after his Presidency. He was very keen on physical fitness.
Remnants of the old club facilities remain and the current management hopes to restore some to their former glory.
Below is first the exterior of the building at 11th and Baltimore. Then the entryway. The Ballroom takes up the fifth and sixth floors.
More pictures later including rooftop views (if we EVER get warmer weather). The building is the 20th tallest building in Kansas City at 24 floors.
Many thanks to Dawña the building manager who allowed me to photograph this treasure!
