The Shawnee Methodist Mission in Fairway lies at the heart of the history of Johnson County. While the site is popular for school children and tourists, it also serves as a resource for those interested in the history of the Trails, Westward expansion and Indian-White relations.
The Mission has a small library that serves the needs of students and academics looking to research these topics. It houses a collection of books and periodicals, as well as hundreds of clippings files.
The Shawnee Mission library is open by appointment only. Call (913) 262-0867 for more information.
