Mission Statement

The Mission of the Wornall/Majors House Museums is to engage the community by bringing history to life through hands-on, innovative programs and experiences.

Description

Built in 1858, the John Wornall House Museum is a restored Greek Revival home furnished with period antiques. Built As the family home of John and Eliza Wornall, the house played a crucial role in the 1864 Battle of Westport. The Wornall House is a treasure from the days of early Kansas City, and is a valuable educational tool for all ages. On our tours, visitors from around the metro and across the country learn about the frontier experience, the Border Wars, and the American Civil War in an immersive environment.
We invite you to join us in sharing our story, preserving our structure, and raising our visibility in the community.
