Located in the former Monroe Elementary School, the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site commemorates the U.S. Supreme Court's 1954 landmark ruling that ended legal segregation in public schools. Operated by the National Park Service, the two-story building has been restored to its 1954 appearance, when it was one of four elementary schools for African-American students in Topeka.

With the help of films, displays and interactive galleries, visitors can explore events in history that led up to the Brown v. Board of Education case, learn more about the people, places and events that shaped the years right before and after the decision, discover events that happened as a result of Brown, and examine the continuing struggle for equality. You can learn more about the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site at http://www.nps.gov/brvb.

There are a limited number of picnic tables in the open area to the south of the building. Additional tables, benches and a BBQ grill can be found in Grant Cushinberry Park (see separate listing) across the street to the east.
