Most homes in Mission Hills, Indian Hills and Sagamore subdivisions were built in the 1920's and 30's although fill-in construction is ongoing in all three subdivision. The homes are generally larger than what one would consider average. The original vision for the neighborhood was another visionary idea from J. C. Nichols.

Building of these luxury neighborhoods coincided with the development of the Country Club Plaza and Sunset Hill, on the Missouri side. Now within the urban core of Kansas City, in the 20's there were horse trails leading from the neighborhoods into the Country Club Plaza.

Situated between three country clubs, the winding streets of Mission Hills and her two sister neighborhoods are a sanctuary within the city limits of Kansas City.
