This was a supercute museum that only costs $2 to get in. I was quite impressed with the man who handles the real working farm equipment and stagecoaches. He was very knowledgeable and told us that all of the farming done on the property is done the same way with the same tools from way back when. Very interesting!

I have seen the sign for this before, but never stopped. We are earning Sante Fe Trail badges on a summer trip, so we stopped this time. We were a bit pressed for time, so we kind of rushed through. I would think you could spend a couple of hours here...especially if you enjoy history. We hit it on the... More

The Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm Historic Site is a wonderful piece of living Kansas history. A main building houses the historic info and pictures and displays, but more importantly there is the original Mahaffie home you can tour, a working stagecoach (my first stagecoach ride!), a blacksmith shop, a barn with animals and farm equipment, etc. On the day...

Mahaffie Stagecoach Farm and Stop is a worthwhile stop. The weekends are better when they have volunteers dressed in period costumes. They are very knowledgeable on life in the late 1800's. The animals are fun to learn about and watch how they worked the animals on the farm in the early days. I defiantly recommend stopping for a few hours.

The Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm was definitely worth the visit! We do recommend going on a weekend when it is staffed with volunteers dressed in time appropriate costuming. All the volunteers obviously loved what they did...they even had their children involved! I got to help the blacksmith start up his fire for the day...and in payment he gave me... More

I drove past this and decided to stop. I stayed a few hours and really enjoyed the setup they had. There were numerous buildings you can venture into and explore. They had people working there in different departments like a blacksmith etc.. The staff was very knowledgeable. They have a few animals to look at. Felt like I was stepping... More

Very neat little farm. We had a family reunion there and it was the best location we've had! The kids enjoyed the animals and checking out the old buildings. Both the kids and adults enjoyed it.

I enjoy history and letting my great-grandchildren understand what life was like many years ago. We were able to experience a stage coach ride, view the barns, watch a black smith work, feed the chickens, and look through the house. People in period costumes were there to explain what we were seeing. It was a wonderful day with the children!

Was not overly impressed with this. Staff was wonderful and informative, just did not expect it to be in the middle of town, and was disappointed that the stagecoach ride was so short. Also very crowded. Special provisions should be made for large groups so they do not dominate everyone's visit at a place like this.

This type of 'living museum' is a great place to visit. Especially with kids. You pay an admission(based on person's age & resident of area). You can also pay a little extra for the stage coach ride & depending what activity. There seems to always be something going on, that would educate little ones. From the women in the cellar... More
