In 1857, Annie and Moses Grinter built their beautiful farmstead overlooking the historic Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River. The two-story, red brick house built on this property would become known as the oldest house still standing in Wyandotte County. The Grinters experienced several major historical events while living here, including the relocation of several Native American tribes from the East to Kansas, Kansas statehood, the Civil War, and settlers passing through on their way west.
