Formerly known as John Brown's Cave, the site is now Mayhew Cabin and Historical Village. The cabin was built in 1855 where Allen Mayhew and his wife Barbara lived with their six children. It is currently the only designated site on the National Park Service's National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom. In the early history of the state, the cabin served as a stop on the underground railroad and stood for abolition in a time of pro-slavery conflicts in the bleeding Kansas era. John Henry Kagi, brother of Barbara Mayhew and Secretary of War in John Brown's abolitionists army was at the cabin numerous occaisions.
It is a unique viewpoint in the history of America and tells the story in a humble cabin in the midwest.
