Roanoke (Kansas City, MO)
By Mickey Coulter, Mickey Coulter
Roanoke is a quaint urban neighborhood that sits east of Southwest Trafficway between 39th and 36th streets and runs west to Roanoke road.  The Roanoke neighborhood was established at the turn of the century when the Roanoke Investment company bought 188 acres from the Kansas City Interstate Fair in 1887.  Between 1900 and 1910 forty houses were built by many of Kansas City's prominent families including the Muehlebach's, Volker's and Benton's and designed by many well known architects including Frank Lloyd Wright, Nelle Peters, and Henry Holt. These owners and their designers built homes in the styles popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  They valued the wooded nature of the properties, and accommodated the buildings to the natural terrain. Roanoke's most famous resident ...

Historic Homes of Kansas City - Thomas Hart Benton House in Roanoke - Architect George Mathews. The Thomas Hart Benton House was built in 1903. You can tour this historic home in Roanoke for only $4 - I took a tour on Monday and highly recommend it. The view from the street is virtually the same as the photos I've seen from the early 1900's except that the tree has grown. The house is built of limestone mined in Missouri. I suspect that the limestone came from William Rockhill Nelson's quarry to the south but have not yet confirmed that. The first occupant was Walter Kirkpatrick, Secretary-Treasurer of Kansas City Electric Light Company. At that time, the house had gas lights and a horse stable/carriage house out back. In 1977, the Thomas Hart Benton home was acquired by the Missouri De...
