Description

Built in 1856 by Alexander Majors, this house displays unique furnishings that showcase the extent on Majors’ wealth and business acumen.

Truly a pioneer living on the edge of the United States in the 1850's he built a house for his growing family and expanding freighting empire that helped establish Kansas City.

On display are freighting wagons from the past, bibles that were handed to Pony Express riders, wagon masters and all of the 4,000 men that worked for him, and artifacts used for the 40,000 head of oxen once owned by Majors to haul freight throughout the West.

To use Alexander Majors’ great-granddaughter’s words for the purpose of the house, "This house records for history what Alexander Majors accomplished for the advancement of Christian civilization in the West."
