The John Wornall House is a historic house museum in Kansas City, Missouri. It was built in 1858 by John B. Wornall in the Greek Revival style of architecture, with bricks hand-fired on the Wornalls' property. During the Civil War, the Wornalls' home was used as a field hospital for both the Union and Confederate forces after the Battle of Westport. It is one of the four remaining Civil War period homes in the Kansas City area. The museum is furnished to represent the daily life of a prosperous, pre-Civil War family.
