This plat shows the Security Benefit Association cemetery in Topeka, Kansas. The Security Benefit Association was located north of Sixth Avenue near Wanamaker Road in Topeka, Kansas. The cemetery plots include the name of the deceased and the year of death. The 400-acre campus consisted of a hospital, retirement home, children's home, cemetery and greenhouse. In the 1950s, the company ceased to be a fraternal organization and became primarily a life insurance company known as Security Benefit Life. The land was eventually sold to the Menninger Foundation. Today only a few structures remain from the original campus. This tracing was done in April 1975 from an original dated May 24, 1931.

Date: April 1975
