Travel Tips for Manhattan
While visiting Manhattan, you'll want to take a drive around the KSU campus. Nichols Hall dates from 1911, and originally housed the military science department. (That's probably why it looks like a fortress!)
After a devastating fire in the 1960s, the building was meticulously restored, but I think it now houses the department of Physics.
Manhattan is a great town with...
Manhattan is a great town with plenty of activity in Aggieville and interesting places to visit. There is so much to do there that I was not able to see all the things the city had to offer. Linear Trail is the city's 10 mile biking and walking trail. Harold M. Freund American Museum of Baking was a stop I did not have time to make. There was not time to play golf at any of the four area golf courses. Saw the Konza prairie but did not hike the trail there. I plan to return to Manhattan again.
Ernie Barrett...Mr. K-State!
An All-state basketball star at Wellington High School and a basketball All-American at Kansas State, Ernie Barrett will forever be known as "Mr. K-State" for his ties to the University which span six decades beginning in 1947.
His legendary "radar shot" described his ability as a long-range shooter which propelled the Wildcats into the title game where they lost to Kentucky, in 1951. He was named the most valuable player at the East/West All-Star game in Chicago following his senior year. The first-round draft pick of the Boston Celtics, he played two seasons in the National Basketball Association. Following his NBA career, he returned to K-State as assistant basketball coach. Barrett also oversees fund-raising projects for K-State's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. His job is to find donors and to oversee the projects to which they have donated.
Well-known for his firm handshake, Barrett believes that K-State is great because of its people.
"I still feel the strength of Kansas State is its people, no matter what they contribute. We need to get as many people involved as we can," Barrett said, "I've been fortunate to be along for the ride. All of my years I've done nothing but make K-State No. 1."
His 8 foot bronze statue, which features a likeness of Barrett extending his hand for his legendary palm-crushing handshake, was unveiled on May 1999. It stands at the west side of Bramlage Coliseum.
The tallest building in Manhattan!
Grain Marketing and Production Research Center...
The research center's is administered by the Agricultural Research Service, United States Department of Agriculture. Their programs are geared towards solving problems relating to the conservation, production, harvesting, storage, marketing, and utilization of grain. Their research emphasizes maximizing nutritional value, consumer acceptance, and end-use performance while conserving resources and maintaining overall quality during handling, conditioning, and storage.
Pictured here, is the 156-foot high grain elevator and a grain storage capacity of approximately 50,000 bushels.
Yeah...I just put this in here because this is the tallest building here and it's near my parent's home. Funny that the tallest building here is a grain elevator!

All I can say is there is a mean lady that works at the gas station off of Kimberly Avenue--granted it was 3am when I went to fill my gas tank (no I had not been drinking, I was leaving to drive home), but she was so snotty to me...very rude.
