Three historic organizations partner for Kansas City Trivia Night

(Kansas City, Missouri)— The Wornall/Majors House Museums, Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area, and the Kansas City Museum are all part of the fabric of Kansas City history. This year, the three organizations are partnering to create trivia evenings all about the people, places, and events that have shaped the Kansas City region.

The first of two nights of trivia will take place on Thursday, May 25, at the Alexander Majors Barn, 8201 State Line Rd., Kansas City, MO. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with food provided by the Boyer’s Artisan Meatballs food truck. Trivia will follow at 7 p.m., and will feature questions featuring everything from French fur trappers all the way through the Pendergast era and beyond.

The competition is a team trivia challenge – participants will compete in teams of four to see who has the most complete knowledge of Kansas City history. The evening will be peppered with drawings for amazing door prizes, including books, museum admission passes, and event tickets.

Tickets are $25 and include trivia, food, two drink tickets, and one raffle ticket. Individuals can purchase tickets for a full team of four, or can purchase individual tickets and will be matched with others to form a team. Tickets for the spring trivia night are available at http://www.wornallmajors.org/kctrivia/.

A second trivia night will take place in fall of 2017 and will be hosted by the Kansas City Museum. Details to be announced.

About the organizations:

The Wornall/Majors House Museums manages two of Kansas City’s most significant and dynamic historic structures: the John Wornall House and Alexander Majors House and Barn. The two homes merged in 2011 to form one non-profit organization that preserves and protects these two antebellum landmarks. The Museums bring history to life through innovative, hands-on programs and events for children and adults.

Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area is a federally designated U.S. National Heritage Area, principally in the region of the Missouri-Kansas Border War. Events that happened in the 29 eastern Kansas and 12 western Missouri counties of the heritage area led to the Civil War and an enduring struggle for freedom.

The Kansas City Museum preserves, interprets and celebrates Kansas City through collections, exhibitions, and bold programs that reflect the City’s evolution and spirit, and engage visitors in unfolding stories about Kansas City’s vibrant history, cultural heritage, and pride. Located in the Historic Northeast area, the museum is in is in the process of planning for an extensive, multi-phased historic restoration and renovation of the entire property.
