We visited the Topeka Cemetery to visit my 3x great grandfather's grave. As we approached his headstone, we were thrilled to find that my 3x great grandmother was memorialized on the reverse side. Until then, we were unaware that she had a headstone anywhere.
This cemetery is beautifully maintained and a peaceful place to visit, even if you don't have family buried here. My young children enjoyed walking among the headstones in the nicely manicured grounds. It's a quiet place. We would've loved to have taken a tour, but we enjoyed just spending time at my 3x great grandparents gravesite.
If you enjoy historic cemeteries, this is a perfect place to visit while in Topeka. I'm grateful for the maintenance and love that's been put into it for the last 150 years, and I hope it continues for (at least) another 150.
