Freedom's Frontier began as a grassroots effort through the work of people just like you, who were concerned about our landscape and understood that we have an important, nationally significant story to share about the struggle over freedom on the frontier, a struggle that shaped our nation's history, a struggle that remains relevant even today.

Did someone say photo contest?
The 2015 Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area Preservation Photo Contest is up and running! Visit our facebook page here to vote! You may vote for more than one photo, however, you must click 'like' for the actual photo (not the album) for your vote to be counted. The facebook voting portion of the contest will end on 4/29/2015 at 4 p.m.
You may 'share' your favorite photo or the album on your own facebook page if you wish to encourage voting. The more you share, the more you increase your chances for voting potential and for the public to learn more about not only your favorite site, but the rest of the entries which are all part of the heritage area!
The top ten images with the most 'likes' will move on to the final round. Final voting will take place at the Kansas Sampler Fest in Wamego, KS on May 2nd and 3rd and then again at the Lee's Summit, MO 150th Event, "A Fair to Remember" on May 22nd and 23rd.
The top ten finalist's photos will be on display for the public to vote with their coins (or dollar bills) at both events. The winner will be announced the week of May 25th!
We welcome you to join us at our partner meetings that take place every other month.
The May 14th meeting will be held at the Poplar Heights Living History Farm in Butler, Missouri. Meeting time is 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with a farm tour after the meeting. We will be meeting in a wonderful barn that has been completely restored. There is much to see and do at Poplar Heights!
Lunch is $11 per person.
