Kansas City Houses: 1885-1938

The first book to survey the rich architectural heritage of this major Midwestern hub, Kansas City Houses 1885–1938 (Bauer and Dean, 2018) reveals the architectural treasures built during the city’s boom years. Architectural historian Michael C. Kathrens spotlights the work of highly accomplished architects, many based in Kansas City who have long been overshadowed by their high-profile East Coast counterparts. He places the significant but little-known architectural legacy of Kansas City in a historical context and traces the development of the once rough-and-tumble town into a fashionable city with exclusive residential neighborhoods on both the Missouri and Kansas sides of the state line.
