The Simpson house was perfectly charming. We had the ceremony outside in the yard and it was beautiful! I received many positive comments on this venue. Brock, the manager, was nothing but great to work with. Centrally located in Kansas City. Great location, beautiful house. We had 110 guests and we were very comfortable.Sent on 10/23/2011

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!Sent on 05/09/2018

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.

I have officiated at many weddings at Simpson House over the years and have always been pleased with the manner in which they have cared for my couples. Ceremonies and receptions have also been excellent.
