Presented by Jordan Poland

Kansans place a high level of importance on their athletic architecture. From Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence to the Hornet's Nest in Dighton, Hubbard Stadium in Smith Center to Veteran's Stadium in Coffeyville, we cheer for our teams in a variety of buildings that commemorate fallen soldiers, lift the spirits of communities, and entertain us with the newest technologies. This talk will explore Kansas sports venues through time, as well as the stories of the athletes and fans who have called these places home. Join us as we walk through a timeline of athletic architecture in Kansas, across the spectrum of sports, to illustrate how these places have affected our collective memory and have been the gathering point for generations of fans.
