"Abbie Bright's Adventures on the Frontier"

Abbie Bright left valuable insights into Kansas settlement through her diary, letters, and a few newspaper articles. Parts of her diary seem to have been written at a later time, containing elements of a reminiscence.
Abbie’s and Philip’s time in Kansas was somewhat typical, which make their story important to our Kansas story.

This publication is sent to members on a quarterly basis. It will provide some essential storylines and highlight key collections to be included in new exhibits at the Kansas Museum of History.
