Amazing Venue

The Simpson House was perfect for our wedding. It's beautiful, the manager is easy to work with and it gives the flexibility to make it unique. There are hotels within walking distance which was a big plus.

Love, love, love this venue! Charming, elegant, quaint but not too small and just the right amount of vintage class. Charles is wonderful to work with and you cannot beat their flexibility on food and beverage, not to mention the amazing rental fees. This place is a great for a wedding, private event, shower, special birthday and offers indoor and outdoor space. It's a gem in the heart of our city!

The Simpson House was the perfect location for our small Fall wedding. We were searching for a small elegant location to have our wedding and found The Simpson House. From day one the experience was exceptional the manager Charles did an outstanding job with making us feel welcomed and eased any stress we had regarding the location, payment, wedding setup, parking and timeframe for the day of our wedding. It was truly a blessing from God that my Husband and I found The Simpson House. It happened that The Simpson House Manager was also a pianist and he played at our wedding which made our wedding that much more beautiful. We will have memories for a lifetime thanks to our experience at The Simpson House.

Simpson House is a beautiful and charming location for an intimate reception. Beautifully manicured private gardens, as well as other uniquely special amenities are available. Simpson House is located in the art district of Kansas City, only steps away from the Kemper Museum of Modern Art, KC Art Institute, and Nelson Atkins museum. The entire neighborhood showcases the artistic side of KC living. With very close access to churches, popular hotels and caterers, the location is convenient for guests and vendors. The mansion itself accommodates fewer than 150 guests for a buffet event, with the great room seating about 60 people. A private parking lot is provided. A lovely stone porch gives you access to outdoor space, where you can even host a ceremony. Californos is a wonderful caterer to hire for this venue, providing all linens, food, drinks and staffing while adhering to the rules and expectations of the venue. We have worked with this venue for years and it has consistently been a hidden jewel among venue choices, a very pleasant experience for brides and their families.
