Ruskin Heights is a small, vibrant neighborhood located in southwest Kansas City, in Missouri. This suburban community, once farmland, was founded in the early 1950s. A tornado passed through in 1957 destroying a good part of Ruskin Heights. However, the neighborhood was successfully rebuilt into a stable community. A monument was erected in memorial of the lives lost, people injured, and general devastation as a result of the tornado.

Today, Ruskin Heights offers an excellent location close to schools, shopping centers, highways, restaurants, and businesses.
