First Territorial Capitol State Historic Site

Have you visited the First Territorial Capitol State Historic Site in Junction City?

Step inside this wonderful stone building on an early military trail where proslavery forces tried to guide the fate of Kansas Territory when the first territorial legislature convened in July 1855. Contemplate the territorial and national conflict over slavery and see how people lived on the Kansas frontier. In 1928, the building was rebuilt from its ruins by the Union Pacific Railroad. Take a walk on the Kaw River Nature Trail where a magnificent view of the Kansas River awaits.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
