Brickyard Barn Inn

4020 N.W. 25th, Topeka

The Brickyard Barn Inn offers a romantic spot for a wedding, a cozy spot to get-away or a quiet space for a corporate lunch. This charming dairy barn was designed by Kansas State architecture students and built in 1927 with unusual large red, glazed brick on the exterior.

It has survived floods – in 1951 and again in 2005 when it came back from substantial damage. Efforts to remodel the barn into a home began in 1976, and it got its start as a bed and breakfast in the 1990s.

Owners Scott and Truanna Nickel will do what it takes to please guests and catering customers.

“Nobody in town is as full service as we are,” Scott says confidently. “If someone wants a mariachi band, we’ll find it.”
