We would love for you to support us by becoming a member of the Lecompton Historical Society!

We also have an active volunteer team helping us from everything from giving educational tours, to helping with collections, to marketing, to maintenance.  Our volunteers ROCK—and make it possible for us to accomplish all that we do!

If you have artifacts or archival material that you would like to donate.  Let us know!  We collect material culture of significance to Lecompton history in particular.  Objects also may fall within the context of the history of Kansas, Lane University, Border Wars between Kansas and Missouri, the Civil War and to Bleeding Kansas in general.

If you would like to include the Lecompton Historical Society in your will, or have other donations in mind, please contact us and we will help you in your planning.

    Interested in becoming a member of the LeCompton Historical Society. The Cofachique Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will be coming to visit LeCompton on September 24th. We are looking forward to learning from the sites about the First Capitol of Kansas.
