John Brown Museum/Adair Cabin
In 1855, John Brown arrived in Kansas, determined to stop the spread of, and ultimately to end, American slavery.
The John Brown State Historic Site is located in beautiful John Brown Park. The museum houses the log cabin Rev. Samuel Adair and his family lived in when they moved to Kansas. Through artifacts and interpretation visitors learn about the struggles of these early pioneers. It took hard work and courage to take a firm stand against the spread of slavery into Kansas Territory. Kansas was admitted as a free state in 1861.
