Between the years of 1904 and 1914, William Rockhill Nelson caused a number of houses to be built around his Oak Hill estate (present day Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art). The subdivision was known as the Rockhill Neighborhood, now on the National Register of Historic Places. William Rockhill Nelson made his vision of neighborhood into reality and inspired J.C. Nichols to develop the Country Club District in a similar, if grander, manner.
