University of Kansas Historic District

Picture of property Main Campus
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2013-04-16

Architect: see nomination
Category: forest; natural feature; education related; library; college

The University of Kansas (KU) Historic District and its 52 resources occupy 85 acres flanking Jayhawk Boulevard at the heart of the KU campus about one mile southeast of the civic and commercial center of Lawrence. KU was established by the Kansas Legislature in 1863 to provide higher education opportunities in Kansas, with a focus on literature, arts, and sciences. The campus developed on land donated by former Kansas Governor Charles Robinson. The buildings, structures, sites, and objects within the district were constructed between 1878 and 2008 and reflect the primary academic core of the university campus that evolved along Jayhawk Boulevard. The evolution of the campus over a period of nearly 90 years is evident in the variety of architectural styles and landscape design trends present in the district. The district includes 26 contributing and 20 non-contributing resources. Six resources are individually listed in the National Register. It was nominated for its local and statewide significance in the areas of education, architecture, and landscape architecture.



Upper Wakarusa River Crossing

Picture of property 1800 E 1400 Road
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2014-01-08

Architect: N/A
Category: transportation

The Upper Wakarusa River Crossing on the combined route of the Oregon and California trails is nationally significant as an intact river crossing of the mid-19th century route. This crossing also is significant for its potential to yield additional information, since the intact cutdowns are a rare feature illustrating methods employed for bringing wagon trains across rivers and streams. Though the Oregon and California trails had different destinations, in Kansas, both Oregon- and California-bound travelers generally used the same routes. As major waterways were encountered, multiple crossings were often available to use, depending on weather and soil conditions. This particular crossing of the Wakarusa River occurs early in the westward journey - about 35 miles from the Kansas-Missouri border in present-day Douglas County.
