TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) History buffs visiting Topeka are in for a treat.
They’re now able to call a phone number (785-338-4041) and listen to information about historic places in the city. The sites range from a Statehouse mural of abolitionist John Brown to the school that played a key role in the Brown v. Board of Education desegregation case.
The audio tours are part of a campaign that will include the publication of driving guides and the addition of interpretive signage at the historic sites.
More details will be announced Wednesday during a news conference at Constitution Hall, one of the sites on the tour. The hall served as the first Kansas Capitol during most of the Civil War and while the current Statehouse was being built nearby.
