    Currently used as a private residence, this building housed the mission school's headmaster and doubled for classroom use.

    From 1839 to 1862, this manual training school was attended by Shawnee, Delaware and other Indian nations. A mission of the Methodist Church, the school taught valuable farming and language skills, but discouraged these indigenous Americans from embracing their own Indian cultures.

    The mission also served as an early territorial capitol and was a supply point on the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails. Union soldiers camped here during the Civil War.

    The three buildings of the National Historic Landmark are currently closed to the public, undergoing extensive restoration, and are scheduled to re-open in 2004.

    I had not eaten at a Houlihan's since the original restaurant on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City was closed several years ago. What a shame. The occasion that brought me here was a Christmas Eve's eve meeting with other VTers - yooperprof, bradbrown, and stachichach. Great people, great food, great time.

    Shown in the photo: L-R; yooperprof, Mercedes, bradbrown, Jack, stachichach, basstbn. Mercedes and Jack are the well-travelled son and daughter of bradbrown.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite - the Chicken Parmesan. Two breaded and sauteed chicken breasts, slightly zesty but not heavy, with a wonderful marinara and cheeses with al dente pasta. Really exceptional. Sometimes the best dishes are the simplest.
