    European immigrants came to Kansas City looking for work in the meat packaging industry. They settled in the strawberry "Patch". A flood in 1903 provided the impetus to move up ground to the "Hill". Known as Strawberry Hill, this community was enriched by the customs, beliefs, and proud heritage of its people. Along with them came their traditional dessert known as Povitica (swirled bread). in 1984, using his mother's beloved Povitica recipe and her "secrets", Harley started the Strawberry Hill Povitica Company in the heart of Strawberry Hill. At first it was merely a hobby. But it soon turned in to a full time passion as word spread. Sadly, in 1999 Harley passed away. After all these years Harley's motto of "Do one thing and be the best at it" has simply been our road map to success.

    Located behind the church, at 414 Barnett Ave, is the St John’s Catholic Club. Built in 1925, the club aimed to keep Croatian men off the streets and out of trouble. Inside the club there is a bar, pool table, and a 6 lane bowling alley. There are still active leagues and the building can be rented out for functions.

    Part of the building housing the Strawberry Hill Museum was is an elaborate Queen Ann style mansion built by the Cruise family in 1887. In 1919 it was purchased by St John's Catholic parish, expanded by more than 100% and served as the St. John the Baptist Children's Home until 1988. Today, portions of the building have been beautify restored to the Victorian age, the chapel and one of the nuns' cells are unchanged, and the balance of the building is dedicated to the neighborhood's Slavic heritage.

    Don Wolf, a local photographer, is in my opinion a very talented and interesting person. He is from the local Kansas City Croatian neighborhood Strawberry Hill, which was partially demolished years ago for the construction of the I-70 project. He does a lot of neat stuff to support Croatian orphanages.
