About this Exploration:

Douglas MacArthur, George Patton, Dwight Eisenhower and John Pershing all served under Major General Frederick Funston, and if he hadn't died in his early 50s, he may have been the leading General or possibly President of the United States of America.
See his Iola boyhood home, the life size statue of Funston, and a museum displaying Funston's achievements.  Hear the stories of Funston as told from his family's diary.
Open: Allen County Historical Museum winter opening:
