Join us for Rendezvous at the Mission with a mountain man encampment on the lawn. This program series recognizes the 196th anniversary of William Becknell's inaugural journey from Franklin, Missouri, to Santa Fe, Mexico. Becknell's trip opened at international trade route between Mexico and the United States. It made Council Grove an important rendezvous on the trail. Topics will focus on the Santa Fe Trail and include the history of the Kaw Nation, Kansas Territory, and the state.
