Do not miss this years WGS Annual Conference with our featured speaker, nationally known Lisa Louise Cooke. 

Hughes Metropolitan Complex 

Lisa Louise Cooke

Hughes Metropolitan Complex

5015 E. 29th Street N.

Wichita, KS 67220

One of the best features of the Hughes Metropolitan Complex is the location — and being just a mile north of the main Wichita State University Campus is only a small part of that. Close proximity and quick access to I-35 and I-135 makes getting to and from the venue a pain-free experience.

Perhaps the most popular feature of the Hughes Metropolitan Complex is the parking. It’s right next to the building — and it’s free. There are 1100 parking spaces. No steps. No elevators. It doesn’t get much easier.

Lisa Louise Cooke found her passion for family history at her grandmother’s knee at the age of 8.
