First Capitol Of Kansas

Kansas State Historical Marker

Huebner Road, Geary County
South of Huebner Road at old Capitol Building, Fort Riley Reservation

      This building was erected in 1855 in the now extinct town of Pawnee for the first legislature of Kansas. The members were mostly Missourians, fraudulently elected in an effort to make Kansas a slave state. They came in wagons and on horseback well armed, and camped out on the prairie. The session lasted from July 2 to 6.
