A Place in History

The Harris-Kearney House and Westport Historical Society are members of The Santa Fe Trail Association.  The Harris-Kearney House is a designated historic site on the Santa Fe, California, and Oregon Trails. Travelers along these trails would stop in "West Port" before "jumping off!"  We make efforts to conserve the history of these trails for generations to come!

The latest information, hours, and fees are on our Facebook page.
