As one of only two sites in Kansas commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Civil War events, the museum is pleased to present open invitations to our two day event and encampment (Friday is education day, with local schools, but the public is welcome to visit). The free event will be held on the 150th anniversary of Quantrill's arrival in Baxter Springs and the eventual massacre of almost 100 Union soldiers and sympathizers. See this calendar for special events listings throughout the weekend.
