Pendleton Heights Walking Tour
August 19, 2017, 10:00am - August 19, 2017, 11:30am
Take a stroll through Pendleton Heights and back in time to Kansas City’s “first suburb”. Located just a mile-and-a-half east of the city market, Pendleton Heights became THE fashionable early suburb in the 1880s and 1890s just north of Independence Blvd in the Northeast area of Kansas City. The neighborhood retains a number of Queen Anne Victorian Homes and was designated as a local Historic District in 2008 in an effort to prevent the loss of more historic buildings.
The walking tours take approximately 1.5 hours.
Specific location for start of tour will be emailed at least 1 week before event.
