Historical Society Mission



Welcome New Visitors

Topeka High School Historical Society was established in 1985, for the purpose of preserving the grand tradition of this remarkable and historic school. Our mission is to Preserve, Promote and Enhance the Traditions and Heritage of Topeka High School.

Our objectives are:

  • Help USD 501 preserve the building
  • Maintain the Helen McKenna Mulvane Chimes
  • Issue historical/alumni newsletters
  • Conduct Hall of Fame inductions
  • Award a scholarship yearly to a THS senior
  • Receive and preserve historical artifacts for the THS archives
  • Assist classes in planning reunions




Walking the grounds and Halls of Troy stirs pride.

It is always a treat because of the traditions, the memories we have, and the overwhelming and unique history and beauty of our building. We also want to honor and remember those who have gone before us, who have contributed to our history and memories. Please review the policy, now in effect, for proposing or changing a plaque or adornment on the THS walls or outside areas.
