A little bit of the past has been saved by a group of Lansing History enthusiasts, who dreamed of preserving the Old Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Train Depot, now sitting on a tree-shaded grounds in central Lansing.
The Lansing Historical Museum is a historically accurate restoration of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe depot built in Lansing in 1887. Architecturally, the depot is a classic example of a standardized rural / small town combination station.
The Museum houses a collection of artifacts, memorabilia and photographs covering the three areas of Lansing’s history:
* The town of Lansing, including the Delaware Townshiprn* The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroadsrn* The Kansas State Penitentiary
Visit the museum and see artifacts from one of Lansing’s first pharmacies, antique farming equipment and pictures of past Lansing inhabitants.rn
