CONSTITUTION HALL

It is said that the events that took place in this building led to the term “bleeding Kansas” and eventually to the Civil War. It is one of the oldest frame buildings west of the Mississippi and drafting a constitution for the territory is one of many functions this building has housed. As part of the restoration we lifted the entire structure, excavated and formed a new concrete basement, and relayed every stone back in its original location. We also restored the interior and designed and built a display system that describes its history. Today this building is one of Kansas’ most visited state historic sites and a jewel in Lecompton’s historic inventory of buildings.
