Take in a view overlooking the Kansas River when you step out onto the second floor balcony. Discover the way of life experienced by families living on the frontier.
A trip to Grinter Place isn’t just a look inside the oldest home in Wyandotte County, it’s a step back to the days of frontier life along the Kansas and Missouri borders. Overlooking the historic Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River, Grinter Place was the home to Annie and Moses Grinter. Annie, a Lenape (Delaware), helped farm, raise poultry and livestock, and plant an apple orchard. Moses operated a ferry and a trading post, where he traded with the Lenape. Learn how life in Kansas changed dramatically through the stories of Annie and Moses when you visit the stately Grinter Place.
