Shawnee Indian Mission State Historic Park

5/31/2019 Shawnee Mission NHL (Fairway). Established by missionaries in 1830 minister to the Shawnee tribe of Native Americans who had been removed to Kansas. Also part of Shawnee Indian Mission SHP and in the FFNHA. Although we looked, we could not find the Santa Fe Trail wagon swales that were supposedly in an area behind some of the buildings - oh well
