James Henry Lane had a significant impact on Kansas history and is one of Constitution Hall’s more colorful characters. He was part of a large antislavery delegation that marched into Lecompton to protest the convening of the proslavery Lecompton Constitutional Convention in the fall of 1857. The nation’s eyes were fixed on this site, waiting to see what kind of constitution would be drafted and whether Kansas would join the Union as a free or slave state. At this National Historic Landmark you will learn more about Jim Lane, the proslavery and free-state forces in the area, and other stories of territorial Kansas.

  • This is a excellent and welcoming museum to the history of the Kansas Territory and transitioning into statehood. The rustic and quaint feel of the museum adds to it's authenticity and further cements it as a must visit.
  • Lot of good information about the formation of the state. The curator is very knowledgeable and can answer any question you may have. Definitely worth the trip.
