3         GENERAL INFORMATION     3.1

3.2 Background Information

         John Roe House

 In 1958 one of the most imposing landmarks in northern Johnson County fell victim to the wrecking       ball.  The large Victorian frame house at the northwest corner of Roe Avenue and Johnson Drive had been home to members of the John Roe family for 67 years.  Postwar development finally caught up with the structure, and it was demolished to make way for an interchange from Roe boulevard to Highway 50, now called Shawnee Mission Parkway. The impressive dwelling had been built for John Roe, an Irish immigrant who had arrived in the country around 1860.  By 1880 he had built up landholdings of about 1600 acres and had established a cattle business in Saline County, Missouri.  In 1883 and 1884, Roe purchased about 270 acres of land in Johnson County.  Years later, one of Roe’s daughters recalled that when the family arrived, the area was occupied only by the faintly marked route of the Santa Fe Trail and two farm houses on the land which is now Mission.  John Roe bought his land for $150 an acre.  After several years, he arranged for construction of a fine new house.  A year and a half in the making, the 16-room two-story frame structure was completed in October 1891. 

Building this replica will bring the history of the Roe House back to Roeland Park and will allow children to enjoy a piece of history while playing in the city parks.
