Significance: The Quality Hill Historic District is a significant surviving section of what was once one of the most fashionable and prestigious residential neighborhoods in Kansas City, Missouri, during the third quarter of the nineteenth century. The area was developed and utilized by individuals originally from the East (New York, Pennsylvania, and New England) who played a major role in the early industrial, political and social life of the city. The Quality Hill neighborhood represents a variety of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century residential, ecclesiastical and small commercial design architecture from the period spanning the years 1856 to 1929.
