Taste of Kansas

Taste of Kansas 2016The next Taste of Kansas will be held in fall 2017. Be watching for more information to come!

Our last Taste of Kansas was September 16-17, 2016. We explored the story of Kansas Territory from a unique perspective, walking in the footsteps of John Brown.

It’s 1856 and John Brown has just arrived in the territory. These activities were included in our trip:

  • Stepped into the cabin that Brown used as his headquarters
  • Saw archeological discoveries from the family cabin
  • Viewed the area where Brown’s violent cycle began
  • Walked where Brown’s men first faced combat
  • Toured a house that survived Quantrill's Raid
  • Visited the Underground Railroad station of one of Brown’s supporters
  • Discovered why the mural of Brown became so controversial
  • Encountered some of the precious letters that Brown wrote
  • Visited an orchard where the apples are just ripening
  • Enjoyed authentic German dishes
  • Dined at a steakhouse that was once a prohibition-era roadhouse
