The Thomas Hart Benton Home and Studio State Historic Site is located at 3616 Belleview, Kansas City, Missouri. The park was established in 1977 and preserves the house and studio of Missouri artist Thomas Hart Benton. Tours are provided that show the furnished house and studio as he left it when he died on January 19, 1975.
The house was built ca. 1903 for Walter E. Kirkpatrick. The architect was George Mathews, a proponent of the City Beautiful movement. Kirkpatrick was the secretary and treasurer for the Kansas City Electric Light Company, and on the board of directors of the KC Street Railway Company. The home is approximately 7800 square feet on 31⁄2 floors, containing 24 rooms, 4 fireplaces on 3 chimneys, and a full finished basement. The Benton family purchased the 1⁄3-acre property in 1939 for $6000.
