Former Home of Satchel Paige Stabilization

Former Home of Satchel Paige Stabilization

Location: 2626 E. 28th St Kansas City, Missouri 64128

Cleaning, stabilization, and reroofing are underway at the former home of Satchel Paige, one of the most celebrated athletes in the history of American sports, located at 2626 E. 28th St. in the Santa Fe Neighborhood.

After a fire in 2018, HKC and our partners—the Santa Fe Neighborhood, Kansas City Homesteading Authority, U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II, and many others— set out to honor Paige’s local legacy by stabilizing his former home. HKC and our partners received two grants from the National Trust’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund to complete a structural assessment of the house and to stabilize and secure it.  Click here.

The Kansas City Homesteading Authority purchased the home to protect the structure for future use. Stabilization will enable the City to issue an RFP for the home’s redevelopment.
