When one steps inside the John Wornall House Museum, they enter another century. In 1858, Kentuckian John B. Wornall built this elegant home in the Greek Revival style. Accurately restored to the period, its interior spaces and authentic furnishings demonstrate why the house was called the most pretentious house in the section. The house was used as a hospital during the Civil War and has lots of stories. Staff provides group tours, ghost tours, living history, hands-on workshops and other activities. Open Tues. through Sat. 10am to 4pm, and Sun. 1 to 4pm. Also open by appointment for groups. Group rates available.

This is a remarkable piece of history. Touring this home is well worth the time and minimal cost. I live near Kansas City and encourage residents and visitors alike to take an afternoon out to enjoy this home and learn some history that is too often overlooked.
