Organizational History & Mission
The Wornall/Majors House Museums manages two of Kansas City’s most significant and dynamic historic structures: the John Wornall House and Alexander Majors House.
The two homes merged in 2011 to form one non-profit organization that preserves and protects these antebellum landmarks. The Houses, both listed on the National Register of Historic Places, provide a variety of educational and community opportunities, including public tours, hands-on field trips, summer camp, social events, educational lectures and author events, youth story times, and holiday and seasonal activities. The Museums organize many events that have become beloved community traditions, such as the annual Herb Cocktail Party and Herb Sale, Ghost Tours, Candlelight Tours, and the biennial Garden Tour.
The mission of The Wornall/Majors House Museums is to engage our community by bringing history to life through hands-on, innovative programs and experiences.
