This community, situated in the southwest corner of the state, 8 miles east of the Missouri River, contains a characteristic example of a Federal-style one-and-a-half-story dwelling. This is the Todd house of 1853, a clapboard house with a central chimney, located on Park Street in central Tabor. Later additions, such as a bay window at the side, have occurred, and changes to the rear wing have also been made. The house is closely associated with its original owner, the Reverend John Todd, an associate of John Brown in the antislavery movement. Also in town are a few remaining nineteenth-century buildings of Tabor College, which was founded in 1866 and closed in 1926.
