Our Modern Manor Showhouse Tours

Running from 10 am to 5 pm on September 24 through 26 are tours of the Modern Manor Showhouse in Topeka. With one of these tours, visitors can explore everything this historic home has to offer.

The home was built in 1939 and belonged to just one family throughout the years until new owners recently bought it. One of the original family’s memories was how the home was turned into a speakeasy during Prohibition.

Apple Festival

At the annual Apple Festival, which takes place the first weekend in October, visitors can experience what it was like to be a pioneer in Old Prairie Town. This event is one of the local’s favorites and provides live musicians, history demonstrations, an arts and crafts festival, and so much food. Come in and sample all things made from apples, including apple pies, fritters, caramel apples, cider, and more. For more information, please visit KC Wine Co.
