Location: 300 Benton Blvd, KCMO, 64124 - The Heim, built in 1891, is a historic Victorian home in the Historic Northeast part of downtown KC, just down the street from the beautiful Kansas City Museum. The original owner Joseph Heim was head of the first major beer baron family, the architects and owners of Electric Park (which was Walt Disney's inspiration for Disneyworld) in the East Bottoms with a scandelous family story, and the home is being privately offered to our group, as its steward is a homeschooling family preparing to open a bed and breakfast and event venue.
This is a super fun week for AnySchoolers because we have TWO HOLIDAY EVENTS: a Friday night (December 8th) discounted field trip to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical at The Coterie Theater, AND we have this Sunday evening donor-only Ugly Sweater Holiday Party at a location 10 minutes from Crown Center!
