Kansas Day

Kansas Day

On Sunday, Jan. 29, Johnson County, Kansas Government celebrates the 162nd birthday of our great state of Kansas. The Sunflower State was admitted to the Union as the 34th state on Jan. 29, 1861.

Historically, Johnson County is older than the State of Kansas. The county turns 168 years old this year as one of the original 33 counties founded on August 25 by the Legislative Act of 1855 in the Territory of Kansas.

We encourage you to celebrate Kansas Day by exploring our state and local history and visiting some of the many historic landmarks in the area. Learn more about ways to celebrate Kansas Day, including:
