Exploring History

Atchison is a great place to go see and learn history. We got to see many historic homes, including the one Amelia Earhart was born in.


There is also a lot of beautiful scenery around Atchison. The Missouri River provides a beautiful backdrop to the city.

Amelia Earhart Everywhere!

Atchison is of course known as the birthplace of Amelia Earhart. Most everything in the city has some sort of affiliation with her or flying.
