Topeka is the capital of Kansas and the county seat of Shawnee County.

The city, laid out in 1854, was one of the Free-State towns founded by Eastern antislavery men immediately after the passage of the Kansas–Nebraska Bill. In 1857, Topeka was chartered as a city.

The city is well known for the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, which overturned Plessy vs. Ferguson and declared racial segregation in public schools to be unconstitutional. Two ships and a submarine of the U.S. Navy have been named USS Topeka after the city. Its name means "Place where we dug potatoes" in native Kansa-Osage.
