Taste of Kansas

Taste of Kansas 2016Our 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
