The Chimneys & Fireplaces of Raytown, Missouri

BY: ROBERT BERRY, OWNER OF FULL SERVICE CHIMNEY

The area that Raytown, Missouri now exists on was developed throughout the 19th and early 20th century as pioneers moved westward in search of water and fertile lands. In 1862, the city was added to the state of Missouri with an $800 treaty. In modern times, the history and spirit of the pioneers can still be seen among both historical and contemporary homes and the vast differences among the chimneys that they may have installed in them. The team at Full Service Chimney is proud to provide expert chimney repair, maintenance and installation services to the nearly 30,000 residents of Raytown.

Town Full of Sturdy and Timeless Hearths

The homes and hearths in Raytown represent the finest in upper-middle-class dwelling construction as any in the Kansas City area. Though many of these chimneys are nearly one hundred years old, they used the finest materials and careful attention was given to the craftsmanship. For example, some of the flues have the original lead flashing that was pounded into a small square sheet and molded to the chimney where it went through the roofing material. The flue liners in the chimneys (those from the period from 1945 forward) are installed with care and attention one would give to decorative trim or tile.

Chimney Damages Require Specialized Repairs

With Raytown having a rich history dating back to the pre-Civil War, the homes and their chimneys frequently have structural and safety conditions that need attention before being put to use. Unlined flues must be evaluated and re-lined if needed. This is regardless of if they are servicing a gas unit or wood-burning appliances. The mortar used pre-WWII is of a softer variety than is currently available.

Consequently, many of Raytown’s chimneys need tuck-pointing. Readying hearths and fireplaces for fire is a repair we frequently provide due to the conditions of these 80 plus-year-old fixtures.

    A Quick History of Raytown, MO

    William Ray saw an opportunity to capitalize off of his blacksmithing skills when he built a shop along the Santa Fe Trail eight miles south of Independence, Missouri in 1848. The area had been settled by emigrants from eastern territories like Ohio and Kentucky. The wooded, hilly landscape reminded them of the Blue Ridge Mountains so they originally called the area “Blue Ridge.” However, because of the popularity of Ray’s shop and the small acreage he owned that intersected trails, it became a well-known landmark called “Ray’s Town” and eventually “Raytown”. Although Ray moved to Oregon with his family in 1853, Raytown Road was officially marked by town commissioners in 1860. The road helped connect people living around the area to Kansas City.

    Although the trail was popular, most of the settlers had small businesses, ranches, or farms. It wasn’t until the early 1900s when the railroad went in that Raytown began to really grow. An airfield was built in 1922 which was a relatively popular stop for training and refueling. Even Charles Lindbergh spent a few months flight training at Richards Field. Although the town was growing and handling its own municipalities, the town had never been incorporated. When Kansas City began annexing in surrounding communities in the 1940s, citizens of the Raytown area wanted to remain independent and signed a petition to do so. They were granted incorporation in 1950.

    Like much of the Kansas City metro area, Raytown saw tremendous growth in the 60s and 70s. Housing developments and additional public areas contributed to the growth and attraction of the city. The population has stayed nearly the same over the last forty years but offers plenty of modern amenities. The city encourages new business and development while maintaining a small town feel. Residents of the city can enjoy quality schools, parks, community organizations, and great historical sites with the convenience of the city.
