Near Highland is the Iowa and Sac & Fox Mission State Historic Site. It is only open for viewing the grounds. The former Native American Heritage Museum, which operated in the mission, closed in 2008. While it was open, it had one of the finest displays of Native American art in Kansas. It is maintained by the Kansas Historical Society. The Iowa and Sac & Fox Mission was of many Indian missions built in what is now Kansas between 1820 and 1862. Established in 1837 by Reverend Samuel and Eliza Irvin and Reverend William and Julia Hamilton, the Highland Mission built the present building along the Oregon - California Trail in 1845. The mission was sponsored by the Presbyterians. By 1856, the Highland mission had 44 students. Half of the Native American students were Iowa's and the rest were from the Blackfoot, Sioux, Pawnee, and Sac and Fox tribes. Most of the children were orphans. The Iowa, Sac and Fox Mission became an orphanage in 1863. It closed its doors in 1868. The Iowa and Sac & Fox Mission is one mile east of Highland, Kansas.
