Kansas History Online
Kansas History Online is a project of the Hall Center in collaboration with the Kansas State Historical Society.  The goal is to create an accessible and comprehensive e-history of Kansas, an encyclopedic array of articles touching on every key aspect of state history.  This project was made possible in part by a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
