Dickinson County Courthouse in Abilene - Wikipedia



This Site is Available for Adoption

Dickinson County was organized in 1857.  The county was named in honor of a Senator from New York state, Daniel S. Dickinson.  In 1847 he introduced, in the United States Senate, resolutions respecting territorial government, embodying the doctrine of popular sovereignty, afterwards incorporated in the Bill for the organization of Kansas territory.

The courthouse, at Abilene, was destroyed by fire on the morning of January 18, 1882.
