The United States Congress authorized and passed the National Heritage Areas Act of 2006. National Heritage Areas were created in America to preserve and celebrate the country’s diverse heritage. The Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area emerged under this act. This area encompasses 41 counties, located on or near the Missouri-Kansas Border, where historical events that led to the Civil War took place.
The Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area exhibit is the central place for individuals to learn about the historical narrative of the heritage area. The exhibition’s concentration is on the concept of freedom, and how the events of the area’s past still affect and influence our present politics.
