The passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854 further reduced the size of Indian reservations. Too far removed from the tribes, the mission closed in 1863. Today both tribes have reservations in Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. The Sac & Fox also have a reservation in Iowa. The Kansas Historial Society took over management of the mission building in 1963.

[Inset photo caption reads] Chief James White Cloud attended school at the mission. He fought in the Union Army during the Civil War and served as chief of the Iowa Nation from 1865 until his death in 1940.
