Listed in National Register 2011-08-04

Architect: unknown

The building was listed for its association with the early commercial history of Dorrance and as a single-story commercial building typical of the early 20th century.

Florence Deeble Rock Garden

Picture of property 126 S. Fairview Ave.
Lucas (Russell County)
Listed in National Register 2017-10-04

Architect: Florence Deeble
Category: work of art

The Deeble Rock Garden, created by Lucas resident, teacher, and artist Florence Deeble, is locally significant as a visionary art environment as it captures her beloved travel places as “Postal Card Scenes” in her backyard, as well as the story of Lucas history seen through her eyes. People and events are encapsulated in her montages, as are the national parks and sites she visited in the western United States during her summer vacations. The garden is made of concrete, rocks, and assemblage objects. Deeble’s site is one of the four “outsider art” environments created in Lucas in the 1900’s that led to Lucas’ designation in 1996 by Governor Bill Graves as the “Grassroots Art Capital of Kansas.”

Kennedy Hotel

Picture of property 117 Third Street
Paradise (Russell County)
Listed in National Register 2007-01-17

Architect: Not listed
Category: single dwelling

As one of the earliest buildings erected in Paradise, Kansas, the Kennedy Hotel (c. 1888, 1936) is significant for its association with the early development of the community. The construction of the limestone hotel in 1888 was documented in area newspapers including the Waldo Enterprise and the Russell Record. Catherine Kennedy, who also served as postmaster, opened her hotel in September of 1888. Although she soon sold the property, the building operated as a hotel until 1913 when it became the private residence of the Samuel Brown family. During the Great Depression, Brown lost his downtown grocery business to a fire. He added onto the nominated property and reopened his business. Since the construction of the original two-story limestone hotel building in 1888, the property changed and evolved to reflect the needs and uses of its first four owners. The changes and additions, all made within the historic period of significance, help convey the history of a property that served as a hotel, grocery store, and private residence.
