909-911 Kansas (currently Field of Greens,) was built in in 1909 for Josephine Norton. Her father, Willis Norton died in 1895, she survived him until the the 1960s, they are buried in Topeka Cemetery. I found a passport of hers, which indicates that she went to Switzerland in 1924. (This is the passport photos, they are continuing the tradition, I would definitely like to find a better picture of her, I am sure that she would not want to be memorialized with this one.) I wonder the story behind this, if anyone knows please comment, it is on my list of interesting stuff.
Once again, I cannot seem to resize this photo.
