Perhaps she is remembering the Shawnee Indian Mission? See The Kansas State Historical Society (http://www.kshs.org/portal_shawnee_indian_mission) for more info. Here's the link to the map: http://www.kshs.org/locations/map/4

It's a bit east of Antioch, but this might be the one.

While there does not appear to be a museum on Antioch Road at the present time, one nearby location that has a rich history is the Shawnee Town Museum. The museum has frequent events and exhibits to enjoy throughout the year.
