Hyde Park Neighborhood
More than 180 years ago, a generation after Lewis & Clark first explored the land that our country purchased from France, Hyde Park was a prairie oasis, a refreshing rest stop for pioneers headed west on the Santa Fe Trail.
Today, Hyde Park is a vibrant urban oasis for both homeowners and renters. This neighborhood includes turn-of-the-century mansions, bungalows, shirtwaists, and more than 1,600 market-rate apartments on Armour Boulevard. Architectural styles are predominately of three kinds: modifications of Colonial revival in brick, stone, and occasionally all-frame; the Kansas City “Shirtwaist” Style house with stone or brick lower story and frame upper, often with a bellcast gable roof; and bungalows. Other styles represented are Victorian Romanesque, Queen Anne, Shingle Style, and Prairie School Style. The area’s award-winning homes tour showcases these historic treasures.
The neighborhood hosts sought after schools, such as the Academie Lafayette Cherry Street campus and Notre Dame de Sion, as well as numerous historic churches and businesses. Hyde Park’s close proximity to attractions such as the world-class Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Plaza shopping district make it a draw for those seeking a sense of history amidst urban life.
