Abraham Lincoln addressed one of the largest assemblies in Kansas Territory from these steps on December 6, 1859. The steps were originally at the Planters Hotel located on the north side of Shawnee, between the levee and Main (Esplanade). Five months later, Lincoln was nominated for the Presidency. The Lincoln Steps were salvaged from the Planters Hotel in the late 1950's.
