MORE DETAILS:

The Ensor Park and Museum is a dairy farm museum located in Olathe, Kansas, near the southern edge of the Kansas City metro area. This National Historic Site was the home of two generations of the Ensor (pronounced En-zer) family. When visiting, you will enjoy an hour plus tour of the 1890s memory packed two story house and an even older peg barn full of special Ensor archives. Several farm buildings and implements are seen.

An iconic 90-foot-high radio tower next to the home relates to special historic amateur radio work done over a span of 50 years during the lives of Marshall H. Ensor and his sister Loretta Ensor. Among the fascinating achievements of Mr. Ensor, [1899-1970] to whom this site is dedicated, was his lifelong interest in teaching others.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
When you arrive for a visit, you will be welcomed by Ensor tour guides. You may feel what it was like to be an early pioneer of Johnson County, Kansas and to build a dairy farm from bare materials and hard work. You may feel the excitement of being a young Ensor child helping out on the farm and growing to love the life, the animals and learning skills from your parents that last a lifetime.

The treasures of their lives are everywhere to be seen and appreciated. Whether you see the farm implements and tools, the handcrafts of the women who had strong aptitudes in artistic accomplishments, or the early woodworking projects and radio wizardry of Marshall H. Ensor.
