We’re named after Cyrus K. Holliday, the man who literally put Topeka on the map. A businessman by trade, Cyrus joined the Union army—becoming an honorary Colonel—to help keep Kansas free. He turned a ragtag band of pioneers from across the unsettled prairie into our 34th state. And he built one of our nation’s first transcontinental railroads.
