Tecumseh, is an unincorporated town in Kansas, dating from the 1850s. It was settled by prosouthern (today commonly, but incorrectly called proslavery) partisans in the turbulent days when Kansas was a territory. For a time it served as the prosouthern capital of the territory and prospered, even having a newspaper.
Once the northern/southern political issues were settled at the beginning of the American Civil War, the village rapidly declined. It survived as a mere ghost of itself for the next ninety years. As the state capital of Topeka grew in the 1950s, Tecumseh again started to grow, this time as a suburb of Topeka. The old townsite grew and numerous suburban housing subdivisions developed in the vicinity.
Today the town includes a public school, a church, a post office, a large electrical generating plant and a plastics factory. It no longer boasts any shops, however. Its population, depending on what areas are counted, is more than 1,000 persons.
