Significance: Museum Hill is a distinct residential area of St. Joseph, Missouri, that has architecturally significant buildings and historically relates to growth of the city. The area is significant in the history of commerce, specifically in relation to St. Joseph's prominence in the wholesale trade. St. Joseph's wholesale trade during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century led to increasingly wealthy upper and middle classes. This area reflects the housing that was built to accommodate this growth and affluence. The area is also significant in the area of architecture due to the excellent examples of building styles, including many which were architecturally designed. The district also has several ecclesiastical properties which are architecturally significant, as well as a few institutional and commercial buildings which related to the area's development.
