Central Methodist Church, Kansas City, MO

July 21, 2016


Central UMC  and its prominent lantern stood at 11th and Paseo from 1907 until the Interstate Highway System cleared the site for its right-of-way. The fourth of several buildings (structures from 1852, 1875, 1884 preceded it), architects were probably Brown, Burton & Davis.

On an exceptionally personal note, I wrote to Central UMC more than ten years ago, inquiring about this earlier building and received one of the rudest letters in my research experience. The then-rector wrote at great length to tell me she had no time to answer such frivolous inquiries and, in the process, took more time than answering my query might have involved.
