Since the summer of 2012, local activists and concerned citizens with a passion for the history of Topeka, Sumner School, and the Ward Meade neighborhood have engaged in active dialogue about the blight of Sumner School and what could be done to save it. Forming the Brown v. Board Sumner Legacy Trust, the group has consulted with local experts on issues regarding historical integrity, future uses, and potential funding sources.
We invite you to explore Sumner with us and find out about this beautiful building. The Trust is in the process of incorporating and acquiring non-profit status. If you’re interested in donating or participating in the preservation of Sumner Elementary, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
