Come on a journey with Abandoned Kansas to learn about some of the fundamental buildings left forgotten in the Sunflower State’s capital city. From Sumner Elementary School--the center of the Brown v. Board of Education case of 1954--to the White Lakes Mall (Where Great Things Happen!), there is a lot of history not only important to Topeka but also to the nation. It is the mission of Abandoned Kansas, as photojournalists, to document as many of these structures and tell their stories while fighting for their preservation.
In addition to in-depth history and personal stories given by those that hold the dearest memories of these places, this book also gives a look inside some of these buildings. Some of these historic properties have stood high and mighty against all odds, while others deteriorate a little more with each passing day.
