World’s Largest Wren, Topeka, KS


Constructed in the 1930s, this local landmark used to be perched on the rooftop of AM radio station WREN 1250, which, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal, was “a mainstay in the Topeka and Lawrence area from 1926 until it went dark in 1988.” A few years ago, the station returned to the airwaves, streaming only over the Internet. The wren was purchased by Historic Topeka, refurbished, and moved to its current location in 1993. Visited October 2015. 

Location: In Huntoon Park, at the triangle of SW 12th Street, SW Huntoon Street, and SW Topeka Boulevard.
