This Airbnb is housed in one of Joplin's Historic Landmarks, the Frederick H. Rogers House, completed in 1905. Frederick H. Rogers was a mining entrepreneur during the peak of the lead and zinc mining era. He engaged Austin Allen, the most prominent architect of the era, to design the house to his specifications. The house features domed ceilings, hardwood floors laid in the log cabin design and imported wood trim. The Rogers family called the house home until 1917.
Modern feel home, with some inconspicuous antique touches and sporty flair. Located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood near both hospitals, KCUMB (5 min walk/less than 2 min drive), downtown, Downstream Casino, shopping/restaurants, parks, walking trails, Route 66, & I-44.
