Grinter Place

A trip to Grinter Place isn’t just a look inside the oldest home in Wyandotte County, it’s a step back to the days of frontier life along the Kansas and Missouri border. Overlooking the historic Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River, Grinter Place was the home to Annie and Moses Grinter. Annie, a Lenape (Delaware) Indian, helped to farm, raise poultry and livestock, and planted an apple orchard. Moses operated a ferry and a trading post, where he traded with the Lenape Indians. Learn how life in Kansas changed dramatically through the stories of Annie and Moses when you visit the stately Grinter Place.
