Union National Bank Building

Picture of property 104 S Broadway
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2012-02-03

Architect: Vizthum and Burns
Category: commerce

Built in 1926, the 14-story Union National Bank building is a classic example of a tall, concrete-framed, Chicago-style office building. The building was financed by the Edith Rockefeller McCormick Trust of Chicago, designed by K. M. Vitzthum and J. J. Burns Architects, and constructed by Wichita builder George Siedhoff. It took just eight months to complete the building at a cost of $200,000, and upon its completion it was the tallest building in Kansas. The building is particularly significant as the location of a student-led sit-in in 1958 at the Dockum Drug Store on the first floor. With support from the local NAACP chapter and leaders such as Chester Lewis and Vivian Parks, a group of young African Americans peacefully protested the drug store's discriminatory policies for three weeks. Their efforts convinced the Dockum company and the associated Rexall corporation to change their policies in stores throughout Kansas. Although rarely recognized, this protest inspired other sit-ins in Oklahoma City and across the country. The building is nominated for its architectural significance and as part of the "African American Resources of Wichita" multiple property nomination for its association with the 1958 sit-in.

Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2014-06-27

Architect: Mourning, Oliver J.
Category: domestic

The Victor Court Apartments, built in 1935, are located approximately one mile east of the downtown Wichita along North Hydraulic Avenue. The property originally included 12 apartments in three buildings - a two-story central building and two one-story buildings extended at an angle from either corner. The buildings reflect the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture, which was popular throughout the United States in the early and mid-20th century. Wichita oilman John Ellsworth Thorp developed the property in 1935, hiring Oliver J. Mourning to design and erect the buildings, which are constructed of Dunbrick, an unpainted brick masonry coated with a highly water-resistant finish. The property was nominated as part of the "Residential Resources of Wichita, Sedgwick County, Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of community planning and development and architecture.

Westside IOOF Lodge

Picture of property 928-930 West Douglas Avenue
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2013-05-01

Architect: unknown
Category: financial institution; meeting hall

The Westside IOOF Lodge is located in Wichita's Delano district. Now a shopping and entertainment district, Delano was first established in the 1870s and began a transformation into a suburban commercial district as the city expanded west of the Arkansas River (known as the "West Side") in the 1880s. Delano was fully developed in the 1910s as the city's growing population filled bungalows in the nearby Riverside Addition. The Westside International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) organized in 1888 and built this two-story building at the corner of West Douglas Avenue and Walnut Street in 1911. The Odd Fellows used the second-floor space for their meetings until 1983, while various businesses occupied the first floor, including the Farmers State Bank from 1919 to 1933, Ponca Tent and Awning Company, Grotto Recreation, and Kellogg-Buck Furniture. The building was nominated for its local significance in the area of social history for its association with the IOOF.
