Rajarsi's home site consisted of 100 acres of land, the largest estate in Kansas City. It was bounded by Meyer Blvd. on the south, 63rd St. on the north, The Paseo on the west, and Prospect Ave. on the east. The star in the map indicates where his home stood. Research has not revealed yet, what became of the mansion.
James J. Lynn Residence
Section of Rose Fence
June 20, 1935
In the early 1950's Mr. Lynn sold the eastern
part of his property as a new site for the extensive Research
He sold the property for $225,000, which was well below market value at that time.
Within a year of his passing, his family mansion burned to the ground. His widow, who was an invalid, rebuilt this smaller mansion to the south of the original home. She called the home LynnHaven. After her passing in 1968, the home was acquired by Sertoma International and Foundation, a service organization which is there today. Sertoma reports that this building sits in the middle of what had been the private 9-hole golf course. It is located between Research Hospital on the east and the Nazarene Seminary to the west.
