There are some 159 areas listed as "historic" in the county conservation system,but perhaps just as many others have either a rich local, regional or national history associated with them. From the site of the historic first train robbery in the west by Jesse James in Adair county, to the historic Hurstville Limestone Kilns in Jackson County, or the many remnant prairies that will flash you back to the time when millions of buffalo roamed the plains - they're all out there for you to uncover and explore once again! Many sites may be seasonal in nature, so be sure to check out visitation availability when planning your day trip to a piece of America's history!
