Amelia Earhart's Birthplace

Amelia Earhart

Birthplace Museum

223 N. Terrace St.

Atchison KS 66002

(913) 367-4217

On July 24, 1897, aviatrix Amelia Earhart was born in this home, built by her grandfather in the early 1860s. It is owned and operated as a museum by The Ninety-Nines Inc., an international organization of women pilots. Earhart helped found the group in 1929 and served as its first president. Recent renovations have returned the birthplace to its condition at the turn of the century when Earhart lived here with her grandparents. Donations appreciated. Open daily, generally 10am-4pm.
