    The Ward Meade home and grounds usually offer a quiet relaxing place to visit; there are times and events when there are a number of people present but I've nver felt like it was crowded. Offers and i...  more »

    This is such an awesome place to visit. Great for families and couples to stroll through. Lots of photo ops. Many entertaining local events happen here. Old Prairie Town is so cool to walk around when it's open and you can go through the buildings and take in some history. My favorite event is Tulips at Twilight. The garden is lit up with lots of colors and you can visit the little town at night as volunteers take you through the history of each location.

    A wonderful gem hidden in Topeka. What a lovely garden. Historically recreated town is just fun!

    We found ourselves in Topeka with some time to fill and stumbled on this Old Prairie Town. What a wonderful surprise! The park consists of several historic structures, several of which had been meticulously deconstructed, pieces numbered, and reconstructed in this lovely setting. For $4 (ahem, senior rate) we got a tour that lasted almost 2 hours, with knowledgeable explanations of a prairie log cabin, the mansion the log cabin owner was later able to build, a historic small town train station, livery stable, prairie one-room schoolhouse, church, and pharmacy with dental office and doctor office. We love this kind of historical experience, but this was really special. It is a real snapshot of prairie life in the late 1800s-early 1900s. Plus the tour ends up in the drugstore where you get a complementary Green River soft drink which was apparently a popular (and delicious) soft drink from the period. The drugstore also serves a variety of classic soda fountain concoctions such as shakes and malts.

    Beautiful area in old Potwin. Old settlers theme, a little noisy due to highway, and a tad small for anything too big. Perfect for smaller weddings.
