Historic Structures

The city of Emporia has no less than 13 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A few points of interest here include the Old Emporia Public Library, which has its own section on Kansas history, and the authentic one-room school house that has been preserved on the Emporia State University campus. Emporia's downtown area is also historically themed in terms of storefronts, buildings, and feel; however, there are many contemporary shops and restaurants to be enjoyed in the 7x3 block area formed by the historic downtown spread. Main Street is the center of all the action you can't miss.

Enjoy Choices in High

Emporia State University is located right in town, lending the city a distinctly youthful vibe given the number of college students who are there for school. The University's athletics are entirely consistent with Emporia's strong sports and recreation presence city-wide, as it has an NCAA division II athletic program, with its men's and women's basketball team being particularly competitive. Watching any one of their sports games season-round in person, whether football or basketball, can be an exciting way to spend an evening and join locals in rooting on one of the teams. Flint Hills Technical College is also located in town.
