Historic Wooden Houses in Kansas

High quality wood, when properly treated and installed, can last generations. Here are some Kansas homes that demonstrate the natural material’s durability.

  • Constitution Hall. Built in 1857, Constitution Hall housed the legislative assembly. The clapboard structure is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. The building was a finalist in the “8 Wonders of Kansas” and demonstrates that wooden construction can last.

  • Wetzel Cabin. This historic log structure was built in 1857 and is now operated by the Geary County Historical Society. The home was moved to a new location in 2004 and restored soon thereafter.
