This white wooden sign is located on the Sixth Street side of the Osage Valley Block Building. The sign is in a nicely landscaped area of the sidewalk near the intersection. It's unknown who placed the marker, however, it is part of the City Driving Tour, so it waas probably the City Historical Society. Just for reference, Kansas became a State on January 29, 1861, so the Republican Party in Kansas is older than the state. The marker text reads:

Republican Party

of Kansas organized
in Osawatomie
May 18, 1859.
