It was one of the most outstanding examples of the Queen Anne style to be erected in Kansas City, Kansas. In 1919, the Scrogg’s Mansion was purchased by the St. John’s Orphanage. The orphanage was in existence for 69 years. In 1988, the Orphanage was purchased by the Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society and became the Strawberry Hill Museum and Cultural Center.
