The Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area's Board of Trustees' next regular board meeting will be held at 1 p.m., on Wednesday, October 19, at the Carnegie Building, 200 W 9th St., Lawrence, KS. 

Freedom's Frontier offices are located on the lower level of the building. On the upper level, are two exhibits. One provides information about historic people, places and themes of the heritage area -- the shaping of the frontier, the Missouri-Kansas Border War, and the enduring struggle for freedom; the other is about the Kansas Nebraska Act.

A volunteer is available to provide information about the exhibit on Wednesdays from 1-4 p.m., and Fridays, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., but the exhibits are open regular hours Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Freedom's Frontier participates in the National Park Service passport stamp program.
