AAA Editor Notes

John Brown Museum State Historic Site, 10th and Main sts., contains a statue of the abolitionist as well as the log cabin that served as his unofficial headquarters. The cabin, owned by Brown’s sister and brother-in-law, the Rev. Samuel Adair, was a station on the Underground Railroad; it contains period furniture and exhibits related to Brown's “Bleeding Kansas” campaigns. A stone pavilion protects the structure from the elements. The park is built on the site of the 1856 Battle of Osawatomie. A self-guiding walking tour of the battlefield is available.
