Course detail: Experience Historic Topeka

We begin at Constitution Hall, the original home of the Free State Legislature where delegates met in 1855 to ban slavery. Then we'll drive by the Mamie Williams House, home to the distinguished African American educator appointed to the Kansas Commission on the Status of Women in 1965 and a delegate to the 1971 White House Conference on Aging.

Next, we'll visit Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Park to experience the interactive museum before lunch at Celtic Fox. Then we'll enjoy a guided tour of the Ritchie House, a stop on the Underground Railroad.

We'll end with a guided tour of the Kansas State Capitol to take in the historic beauty and grandeur and some of the most important public art in the nation. Our visit will include a dome tour for those intrepid enough to venture there.
