Visited the Marais des Cygnes Massacre State Historic Site, located just a few hundred yards west of the KS/MO state line. This incident was one of the events of "Bleeding Kansas", the precursor to the Civil War.

The site features a stone cabin with interpretive displays, as well as signs that tell the story of the massacre.
