The Real McCoy
Hey Kansas City, we can't think of a better Father's Day gift for your dad than a shirt with both y'alls dad on it...
John Calvin McCoy is considered the 'Father of Kansas City'. In 1833 he founded Westport and in 1838 became a one of the "Historic 14" members of the Town Company of Kansas, which, in 1850, became an official municipality. McCoy opened an outfitting store at what is now the corner of Westport Road and Pennsylvania Street, right in the heart of Westport. The rest is history.
