The John Wornall House Museum

The John Wornall House Museum

Information

lat: 39.0168477 long: -94.5924727

Built in 1858, and designed to resemble how it may have looked then, the Wornall House Museum provides a look into the Civil War Era in Kansas City.  One of the four Civil War-period homes that remain in Kansas City, the Wornall House provides a unique perspective on daily life for a prosperous family during that time.  The House was used as a field hospital during the Battle of Westport and features many artifacts from the Civil War.  Self-guided tours are always available, sharing information about the Wornall family, the lives of the enslaved residents at the House, and life on the Missouri-Kansas border.  Guided tours are available on Saturday afternoons.
