Minor Park

The Santa Fe, Oregon, and California national historic trails (NHTs) passed through Minor Park in the Kansas City, Missouri area. The Oregon and California trails provided pathways to the Pacific for fur traders, gold seekers, missionaries, and emigrants. The Santa Fe Trail was an international road for American and Mexican traders. Check it out!
