The story of Brown v. Board of Education, which ended legal segregation in public schools, is one of hope and courage. When the people agreed to be plaintiffs in the case, they never knew they would change history. The people who make up this story were ordinary people. They were teachers, secretaries, welders, ministers and students who simply wanted to be treated equally. In addition to touring the museum, the site’s parking lot is located at the trailhead of the Landon Trail, the only trail in America which connects and crosses both historic national trails — the Santa Fe Trail and the Oregon Trail. The Landon Nature Trail is a wonderful place to walk the dog and pursue a healthy lifestyle for the whole family. Located on the east side of the site, Cushinberry Park has a basketball court and playground equipment. After playing, take a moment and use the grills to cook your food and have lunch at the picnic tables. Take a picture with the bison statue!
