“Revisit controversies of the past”

For more than forty years, this was the only courthouse between Independence and the Pacific Ocean. Jackson County's first government building, constructed with slave labor, was the only courthouse between St. Louis and the Pacific at the time the Santa Fe Trail trade began.  Two-room log structure was home to roots of Jackson County where controversial slave state, land disputes and westward expansion issues were dealt with. Once a Mormon mercantile store, this structure has a great significance to members of the LDS church. Harry Truman held court here in the 1930s.

This was a super cool place! The only downfall is that it was closed by the time I got there on Saturday afternoon. However, there is good signage end it is a great place to learn history take some photos of the 200 year old building!
