AAA Editor Notes
Carry A. Nation Home is at 211 W. Fowler Ave. at Oak St. Having left her first husband, Dr. Gloyd, because of his alcoholism, Nation decided that she would become “the John Brown of Prohibition.” Her first public demonstration for temperance occurred in Medicine Lodge in 1900. Ultimately her crusade took her, swinging her hatchet and bellowing song and prayer, from Kansas to national renown. Her house, furnished with personal items, now is a museum.
