Topeka Admin Wreckage Footage

There’s some awful footage of the former Topeka State Hospital admin being destroyed here: Wrecking Ball Meets Topeka State Hospital. The video was produced by WIBW of Topeka, Kansas. According to the reporter, the wrecking ball will be swinging for a few more days, and a few months later in October, there’ll be no sign that the building ever existed.

    This is very sad to me. I grew up in Topeka and would often bike/walk around the hospital grounds. They were a beautiful peaceful place, and the center building was one of the most spectacular looking buildings in Topeka.

    I hadn’t heard about the demolation, but it hits close to my heart.
