Shawnee Mission, like many other missions, was established as a manual training school attended by boys and girls from Shawnee, Delaware, and other Indian nations from 1839 to 1862. The mission is a National Historic Landmark and  sits on a 12-acre site.
We will be given a brief history of the site, talk about some of their programs and Master Plan and then members look around exhibits on their own. A light lunch will be provided.
