Many people who seek an apartment in the Kansas City
area aren't just looking for attractive woodworking and closet space; the community, and the entertainment and nightlife that it offers are factors that most renters deeply consider. And as those who rent apartments in Mission Hills, Kansas, already know, their home town was literally founded on luxury and spirits.
Before the blueprints to many of today's Mission Hills apartments were drawn up, the young town was built around the Mission Hills Country Club. Though most of the club was located in Kansas, coy developers constructed the facility's original clubhouse in Missouri, because unlike Kansas, the Show-Me State was allowed to serve liquor. The drinks, and the subsequent addition of the Community Golf Club allowed the town expand in population rapidly, giving rise to some of the Mission Hills apartments that are available for rent today. The Mission Hills Country Club, The Kansas City Country Club, and The Indian Hills Country Club still operate today, catering to those in need of a round of golf or a little relaxation.
In addition, renters in Mission Hills apartments may find themselves neighboring two other landmarks of their now town. The Verona columns and reflecting pool at the intersection of Ensley Lane, Mission Drive and Overhill Road, are an intriguing piece of architecture dating back to 1924 that recalls the town's upscale roots. Another relic that neighbors Mission Hills apartments is the house where Ernest Hemingway wrote a portion of his masterpiece, A Farewell to Arms.
