Territorial Capital of Kansas —- that is Lecompton Kansas. Looking for a unique day trip? Do you like history that helped change a state or helped name the capital city of another state? Actual buildings where you can stand and feel yesterday? Well, it might be somewhat surprising but Lecompton, Kansas is a great place to experience the beginnings of the state of Kansas.
When my wife and I drove over to Lecompton — just a few miles from Lawrence, KS. — I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to spend the afternoon in such a small community. What was really there to see or do. Well, we were pleasantly surprised as to what is there and how they have kept it all together.
