North Riverside Park Comfort Station

Picture of property 900 N. Bitting Avenue
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2008-04-16

Architect: L. W. Clapp/CWA
Category: outdoor recreation

Acquired in 1897, the 30-acre North Riverside Park had experienced some development prior to the onset of the Great Depression, with the most notable feature being the Park Villa shelter house. The Park Villa shelter encouraged families to visit, but there were no restroom facilities for use within the park. Lewis William Clapp, President of the Board of Park Commission, designed the comfort station, which was constructed as a Civil Works Administration project in 1934. It represented the first new construction in a city park to be federally funded by New Deal workers. The comfort station is an excellent example of the Art Deco style as applied to a utilitarian park building. It is significant for its high artistic values evidenced on a small scale, and as a type of construction - Carthalite - that originated in Wichita. Carthalite was a local trade name for a mixture of concrete mortar mixed with crushed glass and pigmentation. The building was nominated for its architecture and for its association with New Deal-era government projects.



North Topeka Avenue Apartments Historic District

Picture of property 625, 630, 631, and 632 N Topeka Ave
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2009-04-21

Architect: Henrion Construction Company
Category: multiple dwelling

Built within a span of four years from 1926 to 1929, this cluster of four apartment buildings at 625, 630, 631, & 632 N. Topeka Avenue share common features of design and construction. All are rectangular in plan and two or three stories in height with brick-clad exteriors and flat roofs with modest parapets. While the buildings illustrate vernacular interpretations of Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Tudor Revival, and Art Deco architecture applied to multi-family buildings, their form and materials also share many traits with Tapestry Brick commercial blocks constructed during the 1920s. The vaguely Commercial-style brick facades and their uniform setback from the street distinguish them from the single-family homes that dominate the blocks in the immediate vicinity. The buildings were nominated for their architectural significance and for their reflection of popular trends in multi-family housing seen in Wichita and nationwide during this period.

Developed and operated by George Saxton, the Old Mission Mausoleum was built in four stages over 36 years from 1918 to 1954. It occupies one acre within the Old Mission Cemetery near the northeast corner of Hillside Avenue and 21st Street in Wichita. Chicago architect Sidney Lovell designed the first two units, which were constructed in the late 1910s and the late 1920s, and Wichita architects Overend and Boucher designed units three and four that were built in the mid-1930s and the early 1950s. All four units form a cohesive, interconnected building with that surrounds a central open courtyard. The building's architecture was influenced by several popular early 20th-century revival styles. Although simplistic in detail, its smooth masonry exterior and low-pitched roof with red clay tiles are characteristic of the Mediterranean Revival style. The Old Mission Mausoleum was nominated for its architectural significance as a well-preserved and highly intact Mediterranean Revival-style mausoleum.

Architect: F. H. Penley, Builder
Category: single dwelling

The Penley House was built in 1917 on a 20-acre tract at the east edge of Wichita. Its long driveway was lined with trees and stretched west toward Hillside Street. The Classical Revival-style house is dominated by a two-story Greek temple portico supported by four colossal Ionic columns that extend over the galleried porch on the front elevation.

Today, the house sits on just one-half acre and small mid-century Minimal Traditional-style residences now flank what was the long driveway.
