This page contains no legal content. A few years ago, I began snapping cell phone photos of the Kansas courthouses I practiced in. Kansas has 105 counties and a few counties have more than one courthouse. Except for the rash of them built in the 1960s, they are all unique. Many are near 100 years old. I will continue to update this page as I can with new photos, information, and links.

http://courthousehistory.com/ - In searching for courthouse information I came across this web page. I have posted links directly to his corresponding page for Kansas counties. But, if you are enjoying the pictures, I encourage you to look at his home page. This individual has been collecting postcards of courthouses for 20 years and has his own site. Break downs by state and then by county. I have not clicked every Kansas county, but he has a great collection. I have placed a link in each county's box corresponding to the same county in his collection.
