Dorothy’s House in Kansas (dorothyshouse.com)

Dorothy and Toto blew into our hearts from Kansas in the award-winning 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz.” It was not until 1981 that Dorthy’s House was finally discovered. It is a perfect RV Short Stop for families.

A handful of savvy citizens from Liberal, a small town in southwest Kansas, found a 1907 farm house. Volunteers moved it to the town’s Museum grounds and transformed it into a replica of the house in the film.

Visitors follow a painted Yellow Brick Road through the adjoining ‘Land of Oz.’ The 5,000 square-foot animated exhibit space features a series of dioramas inspired by the film.

Seward County Historical Museum

Save time to visit the Seward County Historical Museum. It “features items that helped to settle the territory during its Wild West heyday. The museum houses a large collection of things that gave the area a more civilized tone, including a beautifully restored ornate antique organ, quilts, and home furnishings.”
