Hyde Park Homes Tour October 1


WHAT MAKES HYDE PARK NEIGHBORHOOD SO UNIQUE? ARCHITECTURE! Hyde Park is located on land that once was a watering hole for pioneers on the Santa Fe Trail. Wagons circled for a night´s stay near Gleed Terrace and Charlotte Street. In the 1890´s the first homes were constructed. The architecture varies immensely to include styles such as Victorian, Colonial Revivals, Craftsman, Prairie, Kansas City "shirtwaist", Shingle, and Bungalow. A number of the houses were designed by Kansas City''s most prominent architects. From the turn of the century until World War II, a Hyde Park address indicated wealth and prestige. Some of the City´s most influential residents lived in Hyde Park. As a well-preserved, turn-of-the-century neighborhood, Hyde Park contains 4 districts on the Kansas City and/or National Register of Historic Places as well as 7 individual buildings. In addition parts of Kansas City''s famous parks and boulevard system designed by George E. Kessler are in Hyde Park. HYDE PARK BOUNDARIES 31st Street on the north, 47th Street on the south, Troost Avenue on the east and Gillham Road on the west.
