|Historic Homes Tour Day Trip for 50 Plus is July 12|
Historic Homes Tour is the name of this trip. The first stop is the Alexander Majors House, an antebellum home featuring original millwork and authentic furnishings. Majors ran one of the county's largest freight companies and created the Pony Express. Next up is the Harris-Kearney House, which is now the headquarters for the Westport Historical Society. Then it's off to the John Wornall House, an elegant Greek revival home that originally sat on the Missouri frontier. See the restored spaces and find out why the house was called "the most pretentious house in the section." Stop at the M&S Grill at the Country Club Plaza for lunch and fantastic view of the J.S. Nichols Fountain. To find this trip in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus categories and then under travel. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “day trip.”
The Historic Homes Tour will leave at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 12, from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 3:30 p.m. that day. The cost for one seven-hour trip, including lunch, is $49 per person.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
