On this day we start out our day in Baldwin City, Kansas to locate the Black Jack Battlefield & Nature Park which is a Pre-Civil War site.
From there we head to Ottawa, Kansas to find the AT&SF Combination and Office Depot. Lots of Railroad items inside as well as a Model Layout based on the region. Also found some historical photographs of other stations.
We head for Olathe, Kansas next Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm. Found some railroad historical information there as well.
Our main stop for the day is the National World War I Museum in Kansas City. This is a massive place that would take days to fully take in. Part of the museum is a tall memorial tower.
What do you know, UNION Station is right below us. I know there is lots to see in UNION Station but we won’t have time this trip but I do hope to get back someday…
