Topeka's rich Mexican heritage is on display at the Great Overland Station, 701 N. Kansas Ave.

A pair of exhibits opened Thursday.

"Making Tracks" chronicles the journey of Topeka's Mexican immigrants who came in the early 1900s. Many of them traveled to work with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe rail shops.

"Nosotras" is a series of photographs chronicling today's women adapting to changing cultures.

The exhibits continue thru the end of the annual Fiesta Mexicana, July 19th. Regular admission applies - $4 adults; $3 seniors and $2 kids.
