Formerly known as the Wood's Building, the Cosby Hotel is located in the historic downtown Library District at 101-107 W. 9th Street. Built in 1881 on speculation by James W. Wood, the Wood’s Building for years was the office location of several prominent physicians, including Dr. Martha C. Dibble, one of the few female medical practitioners in Kansas City during the late 19th century. At the turn of the 20th century, Joseph D. Cosby purchased the Wood’s Building and the adjacent Wright House Hotel (109-133 W. 9th Street; later demolished), combining them into the Hotel Cosby, a sixty-six-room facility.VIEW MORE
