The Oldest City in Kansas

Leavenworth was founded in June, 1854, although it was not incorporated until the following summer. During the territorial struggle which flared between proslavery and Free-State forces, the city was the scene of many incidents which contributed to the reputation of "Bleeding Kansas."

At this location Leavenworth's first municipally-owned city building, the Market House, was opened in 1858. City business was conducted on the second floor. Merchants, including several butchers, operated stalls - renting for 30 dollars a year - on the first floor.

The present City Hall was built in 1924.
