In the 19th century as Americans wanted more land, settlement moved west. For countless American Indians, the American thirst for land meant a challenge to a traditional way of life. Shawnee Mission, like many others, was established as a manual training school attended by boys and girls from Shawnee, Delaware, and other Indian nations from 1839 to 1862.

Don't miss the Shawnee Indian Mission State Historic Site! A great trip for my whole family with interesting history and fun for every age. My kids thought they would be bored but they were anything but.. A must see while in the area. This is really interesting about the history of the mission and the Methodist minister who founded it. The buildings are almost eerily empty when a festival isn't going on. It is historical and worth seeing. More information on the history of the times and exhibits would be worthwhile. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
This place is idyllic. It's nestled in a sweet, treed neighborhood. It is instantly peaceful. The grounds herald the call to use native plants. This is great place to wander, meditate or have a lovely picnic. Great for kids and families.
