Christmas at Grinter Place, Wyandotte County, Kansas

Christmas at Grinter Place, Wyandotte County, Kansas
Date: 1950
This photograph of the first floor center hall at Grinter Place shows children with Santa Claus. Harry and Bernice Hanson purchased Grinter Place, located in Wyandotte County, Kansas, from Reverend Henry C. and Martha V. Grinter Kirby's daughter in 1950. The Hansons owned and operated a chicken-dinner restaurant on the site until the mid-1960s. Built in 1857, Grinter Place is the oldest home in Wyandotte County and overlooks the historic Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River. It is a two-story brick house built and owned by Moses and Annie Grinter. He operated a ferry across the Kansas River and from 1855 to 1860, Grinter owned a trading post that sold about one hundred sixty types of goods including clothing, powder and bullets, perfume, sugar, and scissors, among other things to the Delawares in exchange for cash and furs. The Grinters also farmed, raised poultry and livestock, and planted an apple orchard on their farmstead. Through the assistance of the Junior League of Kansas City, Kansas, and the Grinter Place Friends, the State of Kansas acquired the site in 1971 and now administers the former Grinter residence as a state historic site.

Interior views of the early Menninger Sanitarium in  Topeka, Kansas

Interior views of the early Menninger Sanitarium in Topeka, Kansas
Creator: Wolfe Commercial Photo Service
Date: 1925-1929
These black and white photographs show the rooms in the first Menninger Sanitarium, a former farmhouse, purchased in 1925 by the Menninger Sanitarium Corporation. A major contribution of the Menningers was that at a time when custodial care or the asylum were the only alternatives for the mentally ill, they brought a positive commitment to psychiatry. The farmhouse became the clinic and the surrounding 20 acres were developed with buildings and gardens over the next years to become the "East Campus" of the Menninger Foundation. In 1985, the "West Campus", a much larger area, was developed west of Topeka. In 2003, the Menninger Foundation moved to Houston, Texas.
