The Kansas State Historical Society will honor the heritage of frontier wood-stove cooking on March 9 at the Grinter House in Kansas City, Kan.

The demonstration of wood-stove cookery will begin at 11 a.m., followed by a presentation on local history at 1 p.m. Admission is $3.

Built in the mid-1850s, the Grinter Place home is one of 16 historic sites operated by the Historical Society. It is the oldest house standing in Wyandotte County and was home to Moses and Annie Grinter.

Grinter operated a key frontier ferry at the historic "Delaware Crossing" of the Kansas River and a trading post where he traded with his wife’s people, the Lenape tribe, also known as the Delaware.

Grinter Place is at 1420 S. 78th St., Kansas City, Kan. For more information, call 913-299-0373 or
