Historic Murphysburg District

Category(s):
Several of Joplin’s founding fathers built grand homes in this residential area, which sprang up in the 1880s just west of the downtown district, from Byers to Jackson Avenues, and from 2nd to 7th Streets. Many of these regal homes stand proud today, representing a variety of architectural styles such as Craftsman, Queen Ann, American Foursquare, and Eclectic. This is Joplin’s oldest neighborhood, and historical markers offer the name and establishment date of its prominent homes. Throughout the year, there are special events which offer home and garden tours. In 2015, the Historic Murphysburg District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
