Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve

Historic Sites, Monuments, Landmarks, and Public Art ()

Listen

Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve protects some of the last-remnants of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem that once covered 170 million acres of North America. The preserve is also home to one of the last bison herds that survive on native grasses much as they did prior to Western expansion. Visitors to the park can tour a historic ranch house and limestone barn from the 19th century, as well as a historic one-room schoolhouse that includes interpretive exhibits.
