"The National Frontier Trails..." Independence, Missouri Tip by brdwtchr

Independence, Missouri, Kansas City: 6 reviews and 6 photos


The National Frontier Trails Center is at 318 W. Pacific Ave. in Independence. All over Kansas City you will see signs on the road showing where the old trails crossed the area. Here you can learn about that. One display had diary and journal entries from people who crossed the prairie. A display for children had a small wagon so they could see how pioneers packed goods for the long journey. The kids would pack the little wagon with food and things they felt they would need as pioneers.
