Long Description:
"The Kritser Home is significant [because] it is associated with the life and career of Martin U. Kritser, a person significant to the development and history of the town of Independence, Missouri and Jackson County, Missouri. The home is indicative of a style of American mid-Victorian frontier architecture familiar to middle class residents of west central Missouri during the years of the western migration and the Santa Fe trade. It is one of the few middle class residential structures of this period left in the Independence, Missouri old town area, that at one time comprised the bulk of this particular type of residential building stock of the town prior to the Civil War." -National Register Nomination form
