Kansas Historical Society seeks structures built before statehood

LAWRENCE | The Kansas Historical Society is asking the public to help identify buildings constructed in 1861 and earlier.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the project is part of the Historical Society's commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the year Kansas became a state.
