3 Gables / Poage-Arnold Farm

Location: 9550 NE Cookingham Drive Kansas City, MO

Stakeholders: Historic Kansas City, Clay County Historical Society, MO Preservation

Historic Kansas City worked with the Clay County Historical Society, MO Preservation and other interested parties to raise awareness for this endangered historic farmhouse located at 9550 NE Cookingham Drive. This gothic revival house is possibly the oldest in Kansas City, the first two rooms being constructed in 1824. Historic Kansas City helped facilitate an application for listing on the Kansas City Register of Historic Places and included the house on our Most Endangered List. After an article published in a local newspaper, a sensitive buyer stepped in to save the building and they are currently working on rehabilitation.
