Scarritt House Update


The William Chick Scarritt Home, 3240 Norledge, reconstruction is progressing nicely.  Should have the roof in place by the middle of January.  Which means time from fire to re-roof just four months. The third floor is completed.  Below, sections for the reconstruction are prefabricated just a block away. I'll follow up with the raising (literally) of the roof in a couple of weeks. The home was originally built in 1888.

The Surprise Is Inside

 I rarely do blog posts on the homes I photograph... they have to be historic or unusual..  This one qualifies with its unusual floor plan/architecture.   Here's the listing if you want to see more about it.  Just went online today.

A Princess Return

 The Fairy Princess has returned to the Kansas City Museum for another years.  This is Princess Anna.
                                    Storytelling, crafts, cookies, gift bags, and a Princess Visit.

                                                        Story telling in the Library.

                           Above, Museum Director Anna Marie Tutera helping with the Photos.

 Wave the wand, say the magic word...and the chest opens to reveal a special gift for each child.
