Magna Carta Exhibit at Franklin County Courthouse

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and District Judge Douglas Witteman will host a local display on the history of the Magna Carta – the 13th century document which set the course for democracy in England, and greatly influenced democracy in the United States.

The exhibit will be on display in the historic Franklin County Courthouse from March 1 to 31. School classes, youth groups, civic clubs and members of the public are invited to visit the display during regular courthouse hours, 8 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m.

The exhibit was produced by the American Bar Association in honor of the Magna Carta’s 800thanniversary in 2015. Although that anniversary has passed, the exhibit is on traveling display. More information about the display and the Magna Carta is available on the attorney general’s website at www.ag.ks.gov/magna-carta
