Grinter Place

A trip to Grinter Place isn't just a look inside the oldest home in Wyandotte County, it's a step back to the days of frontier life along the Kansas and Missouri border. Overlooking the historic Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River, Grinter Place was the home to Annie and Moses Grinter. Annie, a Lenape (Delaware), helped to farm, raise poultry and livestock, and planted an apple orchard. Moses operated a ferry and a trading post, where he traded with the Lenape Indians. Learn how life in Kansas changed dramatically through the stories of Annie and Moses when you visit the stately Grinter Place.

    I wonder how many times the old man crossed the river and how many people he transported. Or if any were famous or Infamous.
    I also wonder how many he helped cross for free.

    Fun quaint property. Nice to have a tour and start learning more about our history. Enjoyed doing after as well. Being new, it was nice to get to visit with the group and celebrate their anniversary.

    The docent did a great job and we learned a lot. It was great to see new faces and old ones too.

    Macaroni Grill was perfect for our anniversary party!
