AAA Editor Notes

The Great Overland Station and All Veterans Memorial is at 701 N. Kansas Ave. In 2004, a local preservation group completed restoration of North Topeka&#8217;s neglected Union Pacific passenger depot, returning it to its 1927 splendor. The station&#8217;s grand waiting room features 34-foot-high ornamented ceilings, large windows and impressive 12-foot-wide, 120-bulb chandeliers. A former pantry houses the Fink Gallery, which has exhibits about Topeka&#8217;s history and railroad heritage as well as pop culture.</br>Outside the station, flags of the 50 states flank a flame-shaped sculpture, the centerpiece of the All Veterans Memorial.</br>Guided tours are available. </br>
