Come discover what treasures are waiting for you at Webster House. Webster House occupies one of the oldest public school buildings in Kansas City. The Webster School officially opened in January 1885 and closed in 1932. More than 100 years later, proprietor Shirley Bush Helzberg carefully restored the historic building to its present beauty. The Webster House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has won many awards for restoration. The restored Webster House opened its doors in 2002. As befits a structure rooted in Kansas City’s past, the building contributes to the exciting revitalization of the Crossroads Arts District. The first floor shop specializes in antiques, gifts, apparel, accessories, and home décor. The second floor houses one of the most acclaimed restaurants in Kansas City. Webster’s Restaurant offers spectacular views of Kansas City and beautifully executed farm-to-table cuisine. Webster House also offers the perfect home for private receptions, corporate entertaining, special events, and weddings. A distinctive bell tower originally crowned the building, but after a tower tragically collapsed at a nearby school, the city ordered the removal of similar structures. For the restoration, a new bell tower was commissioned and now stands as the defining feature of the Webster House. The award-winning restoration symbolizes the proprietor’s commitment to the preservation of this Kansas City landmark.
