Also known as the Lecompton Constitution Hall, the Constitution Hall in Lecompton, Kansas is a historic building that played a part in the Bleeding Kansas crisis. It was initially built in 1857 to receive requests for land grants in the new state.

Aside from receiving tons of new settlers to the area, the Constitution Hall is also where a lot of legislature-related events took place with regards to the pro and anti slavery laws of the new state. It held long debates and saw great opposition against the new, yet strongly proslavery laws that the officials were trying to pass, despite the people of Kansas? vote against it.

These events have helped the Constitution Hall land a spot in the list of the National Register of Historic Places and become declared as a National Historic Landmark, consequently.
