This black and white photograph shows the northwest corner of the Kansas Judicial Center in Topeka, Kansas. Construction on the three-story building, located at 301 SW 10th Avenue, began on November 26, 1974, when Kansas Governor Robert Docking and his predecessor governor-elect Robert F. Bennett broke ground for the future site in a public ceremony. The native Kansas cottonwood limestone structure was completed in July 1978, at a cost of $12 million dollars. On September 17, 1978, the building was dedicated as the permanent home for the Kansas Supreme Court and the state's unified court system.
