The John Wornall House Museum

6115 Wornall, Kansas City, MO

The Wornall House is one of four antebellum homes remaining in Kansas City. Built in 1858, the house served as a Civil War battlefield hospital for both Union and Confederate soldiers during the Battle of Westport. The original property consisted of 500 acres between 59th and 67th Street, State Line and Main Streets. The house and grounds now serve as a museum and center for living history programs for adults and children. The grounds include an extensive Missouri native garden as well as a charming enclosed herb garden. Master Garden volunteers redesigned the herb garden in 2017, creating a formal raised knot garden with over a hundred varieties of medicinal and culinary herbs. Redesign of the native garden is now underway, identifying all species and creating educational literature for the 6000+ annual visitors.
