Small Battlefield Memorial and Cemetery, and also a museum.

Located right south of Route 50, this is a small memorial for the battle and a cemetery too. It has a small Museum. But the entry fee is $5, so if you are interested in that sort... read more

I've wanted to visit this museum for years and finally got the chance! Very nice exhibits. Knowledgeable staff who answer questions. It was good to learn more about the Civil War in this area.

I took my 17 and 15 year old boys to this little history museum. It was a neat little lesson about Lone Jack Missouri. It is small but has some very cool art and artifacts. A good story too. If you are into the history of Northern Aggression against The South. It is worth a stop.

Don't get me wrong, we have driven by the signs to this site for 50+ years. We finally decided to make a special trip with friends. While the museum, battlefield, and cemetery is very small to compared to other Civil War Battlefields it was interesting. Saying that, it is a Jackon County park and not a National Park.

Knowledgeable volunteer staff who showed us around, gave us a tour of the Cave Hotel, and helped educate us on the details of the battle, cemetery, and local lore. The dioramas in the museum are beautiful and do an amazing job depicting the scenes and bringing them to life. Really hits home the sobering reality of how devastating this war... More

The battle of Lone Jack in 1862 had little overall significance in the Civil War but was emblematic of the vicious border war that persisted between Kansans and pro Union Missourians vs. the pro-secession Missourians. This bloody little 1862 encounter is lovingly preserved on the grounds and in a museum by a dedicated group of volunteers. The museum is dated... More

In the little cemetery lie the remains of the Greys and the Blues in parallel lines of unmarked graves. This is one of the few battlefields on which soldiers who died in the area remain there, but it has not been designated as a National Cemetery. The Lone Jack Battlefield Museum houses a poignant display of artifacts and photos from... More
