Harvey Houses of Kansas: Historic Hospitality from Topeka to
Fred Harvey set a standard of excellence. Starting in Kansas, Fred Harvey's iconic Harvey House was the first to set the standard for fine dining and hospitality across the rugged Southwest. In 1876, the first of Harvey's depot restaurants opened in Topeka, followed just a few years later by the first combination hotel and restaurant in Florence. Fred Harvey and the Harvey Girls introduced good food and manners to the land of Bat Masterson, Wyatt Earp and raucous cattle drivers. In her third book on the Harvey House legacy, author Rose Walston Latimer goes back to where it all began in this history of hospitality from the Sunflower State.
