Kansas State Capitol

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Kansas State Capitol

The early-1900s Capitol building, also known as the People’s House, is said to be haunted by a worker who died on the job. Local legend has it that, since town recods show the man was never paid his last check, as he had no surviving family, the ghost still works at his job. He has been heard hammering at night. Another spirit believed to remain here is that of a woman who committed suicide by jumping from the staircase. Ghostly footsteps and crying can be heard near where her body was found.
