Blind Boone in Warrensburg

Blind Boone Park

Warrensburg remembers Blind Boone's Legacy

The park that today is known as Blind Boone Park once served as the park for African American residents of Warrensburg up until the Brown vs Board of Education of Topeka, KS Supreme Court ruling that mandated the integration of public accommodations.

In 2000 the Blind Boone Park Renovation Group in Warrensburg formed and fully restored the park and also erected a statue by noted sculptor, Ai Qiu Hopen in 2003. As a tribute to Blind Boone, the Renovation group installed exhibits about his life, which were made completely accessible for those with vision impairments.
