Old Northeast

Yesterday I spent the afternoon looking at houses in the historic old northeast neighborhood up by the Kansas City Museum on Gladstone Boulevard. There are three neighborhoods in Kansas City where you can find the largest, most beautiful and ornate turn of the century historic homes in Kansas City: old Northeast (Scarritt-Renaissance National Register Historic District), Roanoke, and central Hyde Park. If you haven’t taken a spin through the old northeast, you should do so; these homes will blow you away. Below are a few photos I took of some gorgeous mini-mansions – notice the brick and stone, large porches, and the architectural details such as decorative columns and Victorian towers (first photo is a church).
