Lansing History History of Lansing

ansing’s founding father, William Lansing Taylor, was born on October 30, 1831, in New York. During his youth, he studied both law and medicine. Taylor was involved in business in Missouri when the Civil War started. He joined the Seventh Missouri Infantry and soon after was captured and taken prisoner. Taylor was later paroled after agreeing he would not take up arms against the South again. He broke this contract in 1862 by enlisting as a hospital steward in the 7th Regiment of the Kansas Volunteer Cavalry under the name of James William Lansing. After the Civil War, he continued using his new name. Lansing earned a position at the new state penitentiary in Kansas as a hospital steward.

of land that was platted into town lots in 1878. The two partners donated the streets for public use and named the area “Town of Lansing.” Both the area named “Town of Lansing” on the west side of the road and the “Town of Progress” on the east side became known as Lansing. Doc Lansing died in Lansing on March 20, 1886, and is buried at Mount Muncie Cemetery in Lansing, Kansas.

After resigning this position, he opened a general mercantile store in the area called “Town of Progress,” which was home to the post office and an apothecary business. As a result of the long period he spent as a hospital steward and running the drug store, he became known as “Doc Lansing” -- even though he was not a doctor nor was his last name really Lansing.

Lansing Correctional Facility (LCF) has played an active role in Lansing’s history and continues to help serve the community. LCF, formerly named the Kansas State Penitentiary, is the State’s largest and oldest facility for detention and rehabilitation of male adult felons. The Kansas Constitution authorized LCF in 1859. At the present time, LCF covers 2,538 acres. There are currently over 2,000 inmates housed in LCF. As Lansing’s largest employer, LCF has more than 1,000 employees.

James William Lansing and his friend John C. Schmidt became co-owners of 90 acres

Lansing became an incorporated city in 1959. For the past forty years, Lansing’s population has increased by about 2,000 residents every ten years. In 1960 Lansing’s population totaled 1,261 individuals. In 1990 Lansing had a population of 7,120 and by 2010 the population was just over 11,000. Lansing is called “The City with a Future” as a result of its rapid and constant growth.

he city of Lansing offers support to businesses seeking to start or relocate in “The City with a Future.” Lansing is also a great location for those individuals who are looking for an ideal place in which to live and raise their families. The Main Street System Enhancement Project was completed in 2007 and provides a vast array of improvements to one of the busiest north/south highways in the state of Kansas. Main Street/K-7 in Lansing is now four lanes, with enhanced turn lanes and new lighting. This $17 million improvement has led to many businesses locating along Main Street and new development continues. Carriage Hills Crossing, located along Main Street, is home to a variety of new businesses, as is the Lansing Depot Shops development. Eisenhower Crossing, along Eisenhower Road, is the home to various medical providers who serve the growing community. The city’s growth and recent infrastructure improvements have led to the development of Lansing Towne Center. This future development is a 34-acre commercially zoned area in the heart of Lansing and

within the Main Street Overlay District. The project will be completed in three phases. Two of the first tenants in the Lansing Towne Center area are First National Bank & Trust Co. and Country Club Bank. Lansing also offers two industrial parks located on Gilman Road off Main Street (K-7/US 73) on the south side of the city. Lansing Business Center (a 29-lot industrial park) and Larkin Industrial Park with 10 lots of various sizes, have both received new tenants in the past year. These two industrial parks have a wide range of options for potential development. The Lansing area’s largest employers include the Lansing Correctional Facility, Aramark Uniforms, Larkin Excavating, Lansing Unified School District #469, Speedway Dodge, and Citizens National Bank. There are several organizations serving Lansing’s economic development needs. The city of Lansing, Leavenworth-Lansing Chamber of Commerce, Leavenworth County Development Corporation (LCDC), Kansas City Area Development Council (KCADC), and the Kansas Department of Commerce work together to attract new businesses to the area, as well as advance the economic well-being of existing businesses.

Lansing Community Library

Lansing Community Library

n January 21, 1998 the Lansing Community Library officially opened it’s doors to the public. The library was staffed solely by the help of volunteers. As the news spread about the library, more people volunteered their time to help operate the library. Hours of operation were very limited, such as 8 am to 11 am and 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm various days of the week. The volunteers solicited donations for money, books, and magazines. Lansing PRIDE donated furniture for the library, Lansing Lions Club contributed a microwave, and the Optimist Club collected more than 2,500 books for the library. Lansing Correctional Facility inmates helped with building improvements. In addition to the donations from groups and individuals, the City of Lansing funded the project with $29,000 in 1997, $4,300 of which came from the Lansing Unified School District No. 469. The first Lansing Community Library Advisory Board meeting was February 3, 1998. With the donated funds, the Library Advisory Board approved $11,300

for the purchase of a new computer, Follett Software for circulation and cataloging, bar-coding, printer, and scanner. This also included on-line services, telephone expense and bookcases. The Library’s Longtime Dream Was Achieved A little over four years passed and the Lansing Community Library continued to operate strictly with volunteer help. In the summer of 2002, the advisory board approached the Lansing City Council with the idea of hiring a part-time librarian beginning in January, 2003. The city council approved this recommendation in August, 2002. With a $2,500 grant received from the Kemper Foundation and the advisory board deciding to suspend purchases through December 2002, they were in the position to hire their first librarian. In January, 2003 the Northeast Kansas Library Association provided a $4,500 grant to off-set the cost of the librarian and to increase the librarian to almost full-time. The community’s longtime dream for a new facility was realized on Tuesday, July

Friends of the Lansing Community Library

Lansing Community Library

14, 2009 when the Lansing Community Library opened at its new location, 730 1st Terrace. The collection was moved in three days through the valiant efforts of a young man pursuing his Eagle Scout, numerous community volunteers and the Library staff of three. This was truly a great day for the City of Lansing!

Through hard work and the dedication of volunteers, the Friends of the Lansing Community Library incorporated in late 2009. In January of 2010 the members met to elect their first sitting officers. Stated clearly in their Mission Statement is their desire to “steward” and “support a superior, free public library system in Lansing, Kansas. To achieve this goal, the Friends fund “programs and services beyond what is allocated in the City’s budget.” The Friends held their first annual book sale in October of 2010. They also run the Book Sale Nook located in the Library. All the money raised from the Book Sale Nook is used for children’s programming. The Friends became a member organization of the United Way of Leavenworth County in September of 2010. Great things are ahead for this dynamic group of dedicated volunteers working to make the Lansing Community Library a hub where life can be experienced through books and innovative programs.
