Our History

The Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society was formed in 1988 to promote, sponsor and preserve the ethnic heritage prevalent in Kansas City, Kansas. The Strawberry Hill Museum and Cultural Center celebrates the many nationalities of Kansas City residents. Built in 1887, the home is an outstanding example of  Queen Anne Style architecture and was home to the Scroggs family for 32 years. In 1919, the home was opened by the Sisters of St. Francis of Christ the King, to care for children orphaned during the 1918 influenza epidemic. The orphanage, operated in connection with St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, closed in 1988 for conversion to the Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society.

2nd Annual 5K Walk/Run Success!

The volunteers and patrons of the Strawberry Hill Museum would like to thank all the walkers, runners, wanderers and volunteers for another successful event. After horrendous weather reports of torrential downpour, we had sun shining by the end of the race. Although a little windy and cool, we didn’t get wet. Mike Raymond with SkyCam did a fantastic job again with a drone video of the neighborhood and the event. Take a few minutes to watch and then put a reminder on your calendar for next year.
