Kansas Heritage Group

Territorial Kansas, May 30, 1854 | Kansas Day, January 29, 1861



The Kansas Heritage Group history archives are devoted to digitally preserving Kansas' past, giving future generations the opportunity to learn from family and local Kansas history online. Browse through Kansas history sites and also receive information on how to contribute. The Kansas History Gateway, established by Lynn H. Nelson as HNSource on March 6, 1993, was the second WWW public web site; the first Kansas history online. Kansas history and art museums, libraries, genealogy and events are included. The KS Heritage Group is an unfunded group of volunteer maintainers.

"I would like to thank, on behalf of all the people who have benefited from it, Lynn Nelson for his great effort to build and maintain the WWW Virtual Library for History." Tim Berners-Lee, WWW Inventor, www.w3.org, November 2004.
