About this Exploration:

Visit anytime.  Have a picnic!  For a guided tour call 785.887.6285. 
The limestone cabin served as Democratic Headquarters during the turbulent mid-1850's in Lecompton.  The log cabin portion of the site, no longer standing, was the first structure in Lecompton. A unique feature of the building is its full basement with plastered walls and slab floor. Click here for more information.
The cabin sits on a high bluff in Bald Eagle Riverview Park overlooking the Kansas River and provides a panoramic view of the river valley.
See nature's colors!  Especially in fall, the foliage on trees on both bluffs of the river display nature's wonderful palette of color.
