Murphysburg Residential Historic District
Visitors are transported to an era when the clip-clop of horse hooves on the streets preceded the roar of automobile engines. Joplin’s wealthiest and most influential citizens built these homes during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the last 10 years, residents of the district have restored the structures to their former glory. The district covers the area between First and Seventh Streets on Sergeant Avenue and First and Fourth Streets on Moffet Avenue. Houses are designed in a variety of styles, from Colonial-Revival, Queen Anne, Romanesque, to Dutch Colonial, Classic Four Square and Prairie Style. Stroll the tree-lined sidewalks and discover unique architectural elements that give each place its own individual character. Many of the homes boast original wrought-ironwork, grand staircases, ornamental plasterwork, stained glass windows, fireplace mantels and decorative woodwork. In addition to the array of residences, the district includes some of Joplin’s most beautiful churches. Whether you are a history buff getting your kicks on Route 66, or a connoisseur of architecture, you are sure to enjoy the Murphysburg Residential Historic District.
