The Lecompton Constitution was signed in this house! How remote is Lecompton? This famous statehouse was locked, but the lady next door said the guy down the street mowing the lawn had the key if we wanted.


Such a small house ... such a big impact on US History. The Kansas-Nebraska Act opened the door for popular sovereignty, or, where people could vote regarding if they wanted slavery in their state or not. The Lecompton Constitution approved slavery in Kansas, and the fight for abolition raged on.
