Photograph, William H. R. Lykins house, Lawrence, Kansas Territory
Authors: Leonard, 613 Kansas Ave., Topeka, KS.
Date: 1854
A view of the William H. R. Lykins house, Lawrence, Kansas Territory. This probably is the second house built by Lykins on the future site of Lawrence.

In August of that year, he built another house near the future site of the Emigrant Aid Company's sawmill on the south bank of the Kansas River. The photograph is from a cabinet card made by Leonard, 613 Kansas Ave., Topeka, Kansas.
