These eight marbles are just a few of those collected from Constitution Hall in Lecompton. The ceramic and glass marbles help to document the presence of children at Constitution Hall. The building was named a National Historical Landmark for its role in the 1857 Lecompton Constitution and is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The hall was constructed in 1855 and functioned in a variety of different roles. In the summer and fall of 1988 Kansas Historic Society archeologists excavated at the site, trying to trace construction history prior to renovation.

Date: 1855-1950
