dbo:abstract
  • The First Territorial Capitol of Kansas is the sole remaining building in of the former town of Pawnee, Kansas. The town served as the capital city of the Kansas Territory for five days before it was moved to present day Fairway, Kansas and the town became part of Fort Riley. The building now serves as a history museum and is located in Fort Riley After the rest of Pawnee was demolished, the former capitol building served a variety of uses, including housing, warehouse, and a carpentry shop. In the 1920s several civilian organizations, including the Kansas Historical Society, the Union Pacific Railroad and the Kansas legislature took over responsibility for the building and repaired it. It became a history museum in 1928. The First Territorial Capitol State Historic Site features exhibits on Kansas Territory, rail and river travel in the region, and the history of Pawnee. Since the museum is on an active U.S. Army base, there are restrictions on visitors, including requirements for photo identification. (en)
