Restoring Constitution Hall honors those who stood for the expansion of freedoms and make Kansas a new state free of slavery.
Before touring the restored Kansas Capitol dome on Capitol Square just six blocks south, citizens and visitors will see, touch and be inspired by Constitution Hall, 1855 landmark of nationally important events in America's enduring struggle for freedoms.
. . . Constitution Hall alone represents the important events of the Free State Movement and first antislavery Kansas constitution. The west wall and cellar doors vividly recall the Underground Railroad and Lane Trail to Freedom.
