Old Stone Church

The church was built by Rev. Samuel L. Adair and his son Charles of native stone hauled from the hills around the city. It was dedicated on July 14, 1861. Rev. Adair was many things to the community a kind hearted abolitionist, a minister and a mental health pioneer. The brother-in-law of John Brown, Rev. Adair first served as a volunteer chaplain and then the first official chaplain at the Osawatomie State Hospital.

Renovation was started on the church on October 7, 1948 and rededicated July 14, 1963 as an All Faith Chapel. The building can now be rented for special meetings and weddings.
