Johnny Appleseed Education Center, Museum & Gift Shop

Johnny Appleseed's real name was John Chapman, a New Englander who came west in the 1790s seeking new opportunities and serving as a missionary of Emanuel Swedenborg's writings.
Chapman was known among settlers at that time as a man of very simple means who spread his faith in God as he traveled from settlement to settlement planting apple seeds. It was from this simple living and dedication of God's teaching that the legend of Johnny Appleseed was born.
