In 2018, the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (SESAH) will gather in Manhattan, Kansas, for our annual conference, October 3-6.  This will be the first SESAH conference located outside of traditional 12-state SESAH territory.

The conference program of plenaries, papers, and tours is set against a backdrop of seasonal color in Kansas’ Flint Hills.  In Manhattan, the architectural landscape of the cattle industry and that of the American Indian tribes meets college town - with the university campus shaped by native limestone buildings and green space, plus turn of the century neighborhoods, New Deal-era recreation at Bluemont Hill, and more.  Nearby is the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, established in 1996, that features the largest un-tilled area in the United States and includes the restored buildings from the nationally significant Spring Hill Ranch.    

Most of the venues for this year’s SESAH conference will be at Kansas State University, in the recently renovated College of Architecture Planning and Design buildings.  Lodging will be available in two hotels immediately adjacent to the KSU campus, The Holiday Inn and the Bluemont. 

Join us this fall!
