Down one hall were signs like the one you see below that talked about iconic Kansans. I enjoyed learning about some people I didn’t realize were from there.

The stone corridors on the main floor were beautiful.

From there we drove over to see the Brown vs. Board of Education National Historic Site.

We didn’t go inside, but just reading the facts of what happened here once again was just astonishing, remembering back to when I learned about this growing up.

This Brown v. Board Mural is on a building just perpendicular to the site.

Lawrence, KS

After that we drove over to University of Kansas (about a 30 minute drive), found a spot to park for a bit, and walked around.

After exploring the campus for a little while we needed food. We ended up at Dempsey’s Burger Pub [623 Vermont St, Lawrence, KS 66044]. Burgers were yum!
