Witness pioneer life where Reverend Samuel and Florella Adair struggled to survive on the Kansas frontier while maintaining their Abolitionist principles. The Kansas career of Florella's legendary half brother, John Brown, and his Abolitionist efforts are featured in an exhibit gallery. Here John earned the sobriquet 'Osawatomie Brown' as he fought for the free-state cause. The Adair Cabin was called home by John Brown's half-sister. This typical rough, frontier log cabin stands, in a stone pergola, as a tribute to the pioneer family who bought it for $200 in 1854.
