The site where the Kansas Capitol Building was to be built. It was completed to the bottom of the first floor windows when the United States House of Representatives defeated the Lecompton Constitution by only eight votes. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Lane University is a museum known as the Territorial Capital Museum, dedicated to Kansas history before the Civil War. Three floors of artifacts include information from pre-Civil War Kansas through the Lane University period and more. The Territorial Capital Museum occupies what was once Lane University, founded in 1865, by Rev. Solomon Weaver, the first president; and named after U.S. Senator James H. Lane. In 1902, Lane University was combined with Campbell University to form Campbell College (Kansas).
