“Home of William Allen White, who was a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, editor of The Emporia Gazette, and political adviser to presidents. He and his wife, Sallie, hosted five presidents in their home (now called Red Rocks) including Theodore Roosevelt. Their son, William Lindsay White, was a well-known radio broadcaster and later an editor of the Gazette. They connected with famous people like H. G. Wells and Albert Einstein. You're in good company when you visit Red Rocks. White was named one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas People and is honored at the State Capitol in Topeka with a marble statue in the rotunda.”
