About Pendleton Heights
Pendleton Heights is a downtown neighborhood that boasts Kansas City’s first Boulevard, three city parks, one of only two nationally-listed urban scenic byways, and the largest collection of true Victorian homes in the city. In 2013, This Old House chose Pendleton Heights as one of their Best Old House Neighborhoods in the U.S. But we’re not just houses and parks.
A steady stream of artists, urban professionals, and young families call Pendleton Heights home. Ask them, and most will say they chose the neighborhood for the houses or affordability, but stay for the people. That’s because our people value one another and believe everyone has something to contribute. A strong sense of community is our core value.
Pendleton Heights is also home to some of the most welcoming, resourceful, and connected people in the city. This neighborhood has a long history of attracting immigrants (Irish, Italian, Vietnamese, Mexican, Somali and now Bhutanese and Burmese, just to name a few) and that gives PH its unique flavor.
