Guide to Your Kansas City Home's Architectural Style – Is it Prairie, Ranch or Colonial?
This is a wonderful guide to residential architecture, found on the Anderson Architecture Website. It has photos of 15 different residential architecture styles with brief descriptions of each style’s outstanding features. The styles and development of our cities must have coincided because this grouping of photos and architectural styles greatly resemble that of Kansas City. For example, I could find a very similar Queen Anne in the historic Northeast, the Neoclassical along Ward Parkway, the Italianate in Westside, the Bungalows in Brookside and Midtown, Arts and Crafts and Prairie styles in Sunset Hill and Brookside, Tudors in Brookside and Waldo, the Shingle Style in Hyde Park, and so on.
