What You’ll Learn

The Wornall House was built in 1858 and is one of the few surviving Kansas City homes from the Civil War era. The house has been almost continuously owned by the Wornall family until the death of John Wornall Jr. in 1962. It was opened as Kansas City’s first house museum in 1972 and has been sharing stories of the past with visitors since then.

Visitors to the John Wornall House Museum will learn about many topics, including:

  • Stories from the Wornall family
  • Frontier farm life in the mid-nineteenth century
  • The Battle of Westport & Civil War medicine
  • Slavery at the Wornall homestead and in Missouri
  • The Border War and the Civil War in Kansas City
