This aerial view shows the Security Benefit Association grounds in Topeka, Kansas. The facility was located west of Sixth Avenue in Topeka, Kansas, and was owned and operated by the fraternal organization. The 400-acre grounds consisted of a hospital, retirement home, children's home, school house and cemetery. In the 1950s, the cooperative farm was abandoned when 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 are remaining.

Date: Between 1940s and 1950s
