I collect visits to capitol buildings across the US. Florida, Illinois, Washington DC, Austin, Harrisburg, and Phoenix Arizona are some of the more recent ones. In one of my time-traveling trips back to the year I spent in Topeka middle-of-nowhere Kansas, I took the opportunity to also visit the local Kansas capitol building, one more to add to the collection! As with most capitol buildings, you can wonder around and see the rooms where things happen, view some exhibitions and also join a guided tour. This one dates back to 1861, so there’s definitely some history here, and the architecture is grand and is very impressive, especially considering the relatively low surrounding buildings.
I’d say this is definitely one of the ‘prime attractions’ in the Topeka area, definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area, especially if you’re a capitol building visits collector like me 😛
