Experience the holiday magic of Christmas when visiting Historic Lecompton, Kansas. Visitors can see an indoor display of over 150 trees decorated in antique, Victorian, vintage and theme decor – including turn of the century and WW II era decorations. Among the many trees is a barb-wire tree, a feather tree, a Victorian Costume tree and many more unique decorations.
At the same time, visitors can also tour Constitution Hall, a National Landmark. Lecompton is known as the “Birthplace of the Civil War, Where Slavery Began to Die.” Lecompton was recently named one of the “Best Small Towns in Kansas” by Kansas Magazine readers.
The Christmas display will be offered from November 3 to January 3. The display and museum is open 10 am to 4 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 pm Sunday.
Many interesting historical sites in the area can be seen on a walking tour, starting from the Territorial Capital. There are also unique shops and eateries in this quaint little town. For more information on the display and the museum, go to lecomptonkansas.com.
