Rotary Park

This S. Kansas Avenue pocket park celebrates the intersection of four unique and nationally significant historic events here on S. Kansas Avenue: the Topeka Constitutional Convention in 1855, dispersal of the Free State Legislature on July 4, 1856, and nearly 100 years later, the Federal trial that led to the landmark Supreme Court decision, Brown v. Board of Education.
The Topeka Constitution was the first successful battle against the slave power of the country, the beginning of the end of slavery in the United States
