  • 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.
  • This is a historical area in Topeka Kansas. It's very beautiful and very well maintained
  • Cool little park. I recommend going during operation hours of the small shops there. Old time shakes, malts, candy, etc
  • it's absolutely beautiful, old prairie town looks untouched and so rustic, never knew this little piece of heaven existed it this modern day
  • Beautiful grounds!!
