About Freedom's Frontier NHA

Congress designated Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area (FFNHA) to work with the National Park Service and local organizations to tell the important freedom stories of this region. Our major themes are:

  • The settlement of the frontier
  • The Border and Civil Wars on the western frontier
  • The enduring struggle for freedom

More than 165 museums, historical societies, and heritage sites partner with us in telling these stories. FFNHA’s boundaries include 3 million people and 30,000 square miles along the Kansas-Missouri border. FFNHA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
