For week 29 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we're taking a closer look at our City Directories. The Topeka Room has an extensive collection of Topeka city directories dating from 1870 to the present. These directories can be helpful in establishing the year a house was built, as well as the names and occupations of previous residents. Some directories are available online: Topeka City Directory, 1874-1875 (A complete transcription of the 1874-1875 Topeka City Directory published by F. H. Woodbury.) Topeka City Directory, 1912 (An indexed scan of an original 1912 Topeka City Directory. Available through DistantCousin.com.)
