A view of people standing before the William H. R. Lykins house in Lawrence, Kansas Territory. This probably is the second house built by Lykins on the future site of Lawrence. He settled in the area on May 26, 1854, many weeks before the first Emigrant Aid Society party arrived. Lykins built one house northwest of the present-day Lawrence in May, 1854. In August, 1854, he built another house near the future site of the Emigrant Aid Company's sawmill on the south bank of the Kansas River. This photograph is from a cabinet card made by Leonard, 613 Kansas Avenue in Topeka, Kansas.

Creator: Leonard, 613 Kansas Ave., Topeka, KS.,
