Synopsis: Described as neither east nor west nor north nor south, Missouri served, for much of the 19th century, as America s gateway to somewhere else, the half-point to the western frontier.

It has been home to the nation s richest farmers, ambitious immigrant entrepreneurs, and American visionaries Mark Twain and Thomas Hart Benton. Their houses were quirky mid-American interpretations of East Coast and European idioms distilled by homegrown architects.

At Westmoreland Place, Portland Place, and Parkview in St. Louis and the model Country Club District in Kansas City, progressive civil engineers, planners, and landscape designers transformed wheat fields and flower-strewn prairies into sophisticated planned communities that remain to this day the best places in town to live.

With nearly 300 archival photographs, drawings, and original floor plans, HOUSES OF MISSOURI, 1880 1940, offers an intimate tour behind the facades of 45 purely American houses. Among these are Greystone, the pastoral Gothic cottage of Major Emory Foster in Pavely; Oak Hill, the opulent mansion of the legendary Kansas City Star publisher William Rockhill Nelson; the iconoclastic machine in the prairie, Samuel Marx-designed Ladue residence for department store magnate Morton May; and Chatol, the striking Art Moderne farmhouse in rural Boone county. The authors bring to life the fortunes, motivations, and aspirations of their wealthy and upstanding house owners who rigorously defined what was suitable and respectable living in America s heartland.

About the Author: Cydney Millstein is a preservation consultant, architectural historian, and principal and owner of Architectural & Historical Research, LLC in Kansas City, Missouri, with nationwide experience in the field for over 25 years. Her work includes the examination and documentation of buildings and industrial typologies for a variety of clients, both public and private. Additionally, Ms. Millstein has lectured on many related topics and has published articles in professional journals including CRM and Legacies.

Carol Grove is an art historian who specializes in the study of American architecture and landscapes. Her doctoral degree, from the University of Missouri-Columbia, focused on nineteenth-century landscape aesthetics and garden botany as applied at public institutions in St. Louis. She works to promote historic buildings and landscapes as a board member of the Missouri Alliance for Historic Preservation, the Alliance for Historic Landscape Preservation and Scenic Missouri.
