Former Home of Sarah Rector

Location: 2000 East 12th St Kansas City, Missouri

The Rector Mansion has been on HKC’s “Most Endangered List” in an effort to bring awareness to the plight of this important site. Sarah Rector’s story is a relatively untold story of American success and a woman’s prosperity. During segregation, her complex legacy reached beyond racial boundaries.

As a part of our field service outreach, HKC has established a relationship with the new building owner, United Inner City Services’ (UICS) and has supported their efforts to seek funding and explore restoration of the Sarah Rector Mansion. A grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation has laid the groundwork for this ongoing effort.
