Legler Barn Museum

The Kansas City area is alive with a wealth of history, which its residents take pains to ensure stays active, visible, and present within the community.  One way in which this is ensured is through historical societies such as the Lenexa Historical Society, which sponsors such area attractions as the Legler Barn Museum

Initially built by resident Adam Legler in 1864, the Legler Barn Museum features various historical exhibits demonstrating the KC area's unique heritage; exhibits vary throughout the year, but, as evidenced on the Lenexa Historical Society's website, each Wednesday visitors are given the opportunity to see demonstrations by the Legler Barn Quilters.  Nearby attractions also serve to enhance the history lesson, as can be seen with the reproduction sod house, train station, and even an herb garden!

Open every day but Monday and major holidays (Tuesday through Friday from 10am-4pm, Saturday and Sunday 1pm-4pm), the Legler Barn Museum is located at 14907 West 87th Street Parkway.  Not only is this local gem free to the general public, but it also offers a chance for visitors and residents alike to learn more about their area, thus giving them yet another opportunity to be justifiably proud of their Kansas City roots.
