The Country Club Plaza, just south of downtown Kansas City, Missouri, is said to be the first shopping center in the world built to accommodate visitors arriving by automobile. The project started in 1907 and opened for business in 1923. To this day it goes without saying it is also the oldest planned shopping center in the world. The cars are still there and so are the horse drawn carriages and surreys. Giddyup!
Designed by architect Edward Buehler Delk and influenced by the architecture of Seville, Spain, the Plaza is full of mosaics, statues and fountains.
