The Kansas City Museum’s restoration and renovation project is a multi-year, multi-staged project to restore and renovate the entire 3.5 acre property. Each Stage will open to the public upon completion.

  • Stage I was the restoration and renovation of Corinthian Hall (the mansion).
  • Additional Stages will include the restoration and renovation of the Carriage House and Paddock Area, Conservatory & Pergola, Lodge (originally the Horse Trainer’s Home), Tool Shed, and Perimeter Fence and Gates.

In April 2015, International Architects Atelier (IAA) began comprehensive Master Planning for the entire property and Architectural Design Planning for Stage I Corinthian Hall. Retired City Architect for the City of Kansas City, Missouri Eric Bosch was also integral to the project team.

In November 2017, JE Dunn Construction began construction on Stage I.

On October 21, 2021, Corinthian Hall opened to the public.
