Welcome to the website of the Historic Westheight Neighborhood Association
We are a nonprofit volunteer organization established to improve life in Kansas City's Historic Westheight Neighborhood.
Read more about what's happening NOW in our bimonthly neighborhood newsletter.
Who we are
Historic Westheight Manor has one of the richest architectural histories in all of Kansas City.
Notable architects such as Louis S. Curtiss, Victor J. Defoe (who began his career with J.C.Nichols), Edward Buehler Delk (who also helped build the Country Club Plaza), J.G. Braecklein and W.W. Rose all contributed to this unique community.
The neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and The Kansas State Registry of Historic Places.
The houses built in Westheight Manor cover many styles that were popular from the 1880s to the 1970s - from Queen Anne, to Craftsman, to Twenties Tudor, to Prairie Style, to Mid-Century Modern, to California Ranch. We invite you to take a driving tour of the Neighborhood.
We love photos of the neighborhood! Send us yours!
