The cabin itself was so interesting! The history behind the abolitionist John Brown is fairly well documented in this place. We enjoyed it a great deal. The curator was very friendly and shared lots of interesting information.

John Brown was a stand out in history, It’s amazing the man from this little town Rose to be such a point in history. This is a great little museum to visit

The Adair Cabin is filled with information about the pre-Civil War events, the interactions between the pro- and anti-slavery groups and the conditions on the frontier. The surrounding park is a pleasant place to relax.

The Adair Cabin was John Brown's headquarters during his abolitionist crusade in Kansas Territory and it is now preserved inside a small pergola. It is located in John Brown Memorial Park and certainly provides some interesting insights into Kansas history. The Park is also the site of the Battle of Osawatomie, which took place on August 30, 1856. The Adair Cabin is also one of 8 designated sites on The Kansas African American History Trail, which is supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

We really enjoyed looking at the original cabin and the curator was very knowledgeable and friendly. I had read Cloudsplitter recently so the history was extra interesting to me. I just don't understand why John Brown had to chop those guys up. A shot in the head would have sufficed...oh well.

First off, the museum curator, Grady Atwater, gave an excellent and very detailed explanation of the John Brown years in Osawatomie, Kansas. He is a great spokesperson for the town.

We were surprised to find the entire Adair cabin enclosed by a stone and glass structure. Someone had excellent vision in preserving this piece of history. When you enter the cabin, you really do get a sense of what it would be like living in it. My first thought was how cold it would be in the winter. There are several fine displays of artifacts. Signs explain life in the cabin as well as John Brown’s participation in the pre-civil war abolitionist movement in Kansas.

There are also signs on the grounds that explain the Battle of Osawatomie that occurred on the historic site.

Allow at least one hour for your visit.

The museum guide/docent was most knowledgeable regarding John Brown and local history. I traveled to Kansas to visit the site of the Pottawatomie Massacre. I didn't plan to visit the John Brown museum because I didn't know how it would make me feel. As a relative of the Doyle's who were murdered by John Brown in the Pottawatomie Massacre, I was fearful that the museum would not tell the "whole story". The most pleasant guide was clearly unbiased in his telling of the story. This was such a wonderful experience! The cabin and surrounding park are an excellent lesson in history.

If you are in Osawatomie already and like history then I would recommend stopping by John Brown Museum. It’s a short tour of his small home. But guides are very friendly, passionate and informative.

I decided to visit the John Brown Museum and it was a very quick tour. The guide was polite and knew a lot. I was surprised how many people didn't know where it was when I asked directions in the city. The guide said people come from as far as Germany and many times know more than the locals. That's too bad but I do suggest it. It won't take long and you'll be glad you experienced it.

John Brown's fanatical actions were precursors of the civil war. Coming as they did in the late 1850's his violent resistance and participation in the Kansas/Missouri conflict during its "Bleeding Kansas" period exemplified the tone of the times. Back east and in the south, he became a symbol for the strong feelings in both directions with regard to slavery. His hanging following the failed attack on the arsenal at Harper's Ferry, Virginia became the most important political event of its time. The town of Osawatomie, Kansas was a battlefield of the conflict, pre-civil war. Moved from just outside of town to a park where the battle took place, this is the cabin that once belonged to Brown's sister and brother-in-law, where John Brown sometimes stayed and where Brown once recovered from illness. Fugitive slaves from Missouri once stayed overnight here on their way to Canada after a raid on slave owners in Missouri. The cabin is intimately involved with the Brown story. The furniture is either connected to John Brown or with the period when the events took place. It helps to have some familiarity with the story to appreciate the significance of what you are seeing, although the signage within the cabin is good. Take the time to listen to the recorded stories. If you are into history, the cabin and the battlefield are significant. If not, it won't have near as much meaning. The pavilion was built around the cabin to protect it from the elements so its in fairly good shape. The volunteers are helpful and love to share their knowledge. I think John Brown's story is becoming better remembered and considered as important among historians and the general populace. I was glad we sought it out! The park is on the west side of town so if you enter from the east just keep going. There is an interesting statue of John Brown as you enter the park.
