KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Fire crews in Kansas City, Missouri, spared perhaps the city’s oldest homes from a blazing demise.
A detached garage at Three Gables, which was originally built in 1824 by settlers roughly three years after Missouri was granted statehood, caught fire shortly before 6 p.m. on Saturday night.
“Our crews did a splendid job keeping it from spreading to the house,” KCFD Deputy Chief and Chief Fire Marshal Jimmy Walker said.
Three Gables is located in the 9500 block of Northeast Cookingham Drive in the Northland.
The first two rooms of the farm house were built 195 years ago and is one of the few examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the region.
