Ichabods Around Town

Washburn partnered with local and regional artists to create 5-foot-tall fiberglass Ichabod statues in celebration of Washburn's 150th anniversary in 2015. Local businesses sponsored each statue and display them in various locations throughout Topeka. Thank you to those businesses sponsoring Ichabods Around Town statues and to the artists sharing their talent and time for this community art project.

Have you seen all 14 Ichabods Around Town statues? Let us know.
