My great, great, great grandfather, Henry Grimm I, fought Indians at the Battle of Platte Bridge Station in 1865. Just found out that the arrows he was wounded with are on display at this museum, less than 60 miles away from the stone built farmstead he built in the 1850's. A gold mine for a history buff like me! Looks like a trip to central Kansas is in my future.

For all those Henry Grimm Sr. decedents out there, check out this link. Great job to my friend Matt Wyss for researching his wife's heritage, and taking action to find the original Grimm family homestead in Kansas. Very cool blog post with great photos.
