I am in the proc­ess ­of revising these tours and deploying the revised tours over on my Trans-Mississippi Musing website. These versions will be best viewed on a smart phone or tablet. Please check it out.

Please note the Battle of Westport Museum is no longer located in Swope Park. Some of the exhibits from the museum are on display at the Harris-Kearney House, located at 4000 Baltimore, Kansas City, Missouri, 64111
