The David Rice Atchison Presidential Library is part of the Atchison County Historical Society Museum in the Santa Fe Depot in Atchison, Kansas featuring the story and artifacts of David Rice Atchison.

The David Rice Atchison World's Smallest "unofficial" Presidential Library premiered in 2006 with the exhibit featuring Congressional Printings of Atchison's Senate career, books that include his career and items that connect to our community's other Presidential visitors and the Presidency in general. The three most noted parts of the Smallest Presidential Library said Taylor, are David Rice Atchison's sidearm, his Whitney Navy .36 caliber revolver, the Daily National Intelligencer (Washington D.C. newspaper from March 10, 1849) that includes the mention of Atchison's Presidency for a Day, and the mini-Hall-of-Presidents.
