William Inge Boyhood Home

Picture of property 514 N 4th St
Independence (Montgomery County)
Listed in State Register 2017-11-18

Architect: Unknown
Category: single dwelling

This 1895 Queen Anne house in Independence sheltered William Motter Inge (1913-1973) from the time he was a year old until he left Independence in 1930 to attend the University of Kansas. Inge is an acclaimed mid-20th century playwright whose dramas continue to be produced by theatres across the nation, including Broadway. Inge’s major awards include a 1953 Pulitzer Prize in Drama (Picnic) and a 1961 Academy Award for Best Screenplay (Splendor in the Grass). The home he occupied from infancy to young adulthood, and which scholars cite as influential in his dramatic works, is significant for its association with William Inge. This is the best extant resource associated with the playwright, as its architecture and his life here informed and inspired his works. National Register listing is pending.
