First Home In Merriam

In 1864 David Gee Campbell finally found his safe haven at this site, after dodging threats from the Missourians and danger from Quantrill's raiders in Shawnee.

This valley reminded Campbell of his Tennessee home and his Scottish roots.

Originally named for him, Campbelltown did not become Merriam until long after Campbell's work with the Ft Scott & Gulf Railroad and his donation of land for blacksmith and other businesses.

Burned in 1891, this structure was rebuilt to a similar plan in 1893. The basement is the original from the 1860's.
