“When anything is going to happen in this country, it happens first in Kansas.” –William Allen White, Emporia Gazette
Kansas became the 34th state in the Union on January 29, 1861. 150 Things I Love About Kansas celebrates the state’s eventful history over the past century and a half.
The exhibit—at the Kansas Museum of History in Topeka, Kan., will feature 150 objects, images, and documents about Kansas. It will present Kansas symbols and stereotypes while also turning them inside out and inviting public reaction. The state’s history, culture, and traditions will be examined through these common themes. Please visit the Kansas Historical Society for more details!
Also visit www.ks150.org for a calendar of festivals, exhibitions and ceremonies all across Kansas this year celebrating this milestone!
