Kansas City Area

Rockhill Manor is located in the Southmoreland neighborhood, which is a diverse historical, arts, and museum residential district located just four miles south of downtown Kansas City.

According to a 2009 article in This Old House magazine, the neighborhood ranges from family friendly to funky, depending upon whom you ask. It’s known for an eclectic nature, both in its architecture and its residents. Well-to-do families live in imposing Colonial Revival mansions side-by-side with young singles and couples. It is also home to hundreds of students from the Kansas City Art Institute, who reside in beautiful post-war brick apartment buildings.

Southmoreland is a walkable neighborhood, offering easy access to stores, schools, museums and cultural institutions, such as the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. The Country Club Plaza and Southmoreland Park are also nearby, featuring nearly 200 specialty shops and restaurants, fountains, tennis courts, gardens, and an annual Shakespeare festival.
