William W. Rose Residence
2001 Washington Boulevard
Rose & Peterson, Architects
Built 1922

A two-story, wood framed structure, faced in brick below and stucco above, with decorative wood banding and a tile roof. The crisp geometry, horizontal emphasis, casement windows and wood and stucco detailing are all derived from the Prairie Style. A recent repainting has given emphasis to the wood and stucco articulation. W. W. Rose was the leading architect of the period in Kansas City, Kansas, and a former mayor. Henry S. Gille Jr., Rose's son-in-law, was listed as a tenant in the Rose residence.
