OUR MISSION

 
 

COMMITTEES THAT AID OUR EFFORTS

 

Old Hyde Park uniquely reflects the Kansas City’s golden age of growth in the late 19th and early 20th centuries with a great variety of architectural styles – exuberant Victorian, more subdued Classical and Colonial Revival, variations on traditional Craftsman theme, and a unique Midwestern Prairie style. Students and aficionados of history will find fine examples of the “Kansas City Shirtwaist” and Colonnaded Apartments, with large hotel apartments like the Bellerive.

 

The Old Hyde Park neighborhood is a culturally diverse community bounded by Linwood Blvd, Gillham, 39th Street and Broadway. Hundreds of families, non-traditional households, and single adults are intermixed with commercial properties built along two of Kansas City’s major north-south corridors.

When you live in Old Hyde Park you are in walking distance of the best of Kansas City!
