The City of Topeka has gone through a lot of changes since 1854, going from a modest crossing point of the Kansas River along the Oregon Trail to the center of Kansas' political, social and economic life. The city is home to seven unique historic districts which include 435 individual properties, according to the City of Topeka. In celebration of the day, the City of Topeka government released several shots of historic areas in the city to show how they have changed over time: Topeka was founded by Cyrus K.
