What You’ll Learn

The Majors House was built in 1856 and is one of the few surviving Kansas City homes from the Civil War era. The house originally served as the base of operations for Alexander Majors’ overland shipping company. Majors was instrumental in the opening of the West, both because of his freighting companies, and his part-ownership of the Pony Express.

Visitors to the Alexander Majors House Museum will learn about many topics, including:

  • The shipping firm of Russell, Majors, & Waddell
  • Daily life in the mid-nineteenth century
  • The Pony Express
  • Westward expansion
  • lavery at the Majors homestead and in Missouri
