Manweiler-Maupin Chevrolet

Picture of property 271 S. Main Street
Hoisington (Barton County)
Listed in National Register 2012-10-09

Architect: Mann & Company
Category: specialty store

The Manweiler-Maupin Chevrolet Dealership in downtown Hoisington was constructed in 1944. The building serves as the third location of the Hoisington-based dealership, which was founded in 1928 by J.B. Slade. The business not only survived the Great Depression, but outgrew its original location and relocated in 1932. Slade sold the business to his two sons-in-law, August Manweiler and Wayne Maupin, in 1937. It was during World War II that the two partners decided to build a new facility, and one of the most unique aspects of the building's history is the timing of its construction during the war when auto assembly had come to a halt as production shifted to the war effort. Plans and specifications were provided by Mann and Company of Hutchinson. The building reflects the Streamline Art Moderne style with the curved showroom, rounded corner, use of glass block and horizontal banding around the building. Today the business continues under the ownership and operation of Slade's great-grandson Gene Manweiler. It was nominated to the National Register of Historic Places as part of the "Roadside Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of commerce and architecture.

Great Bend (Barton County)
Listed in National Register 2001-03-02

Architect: Brack Implements, Great Bend, Kansas
Category: secondary structure; single dwelling

The Nagel House was nominated for its architectural significance as one of fewer than 100 extant Lustron houses in Kansas. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, architectural pundits heralded the prefabricated house - particularly the metal house - as the wave of the future. The most famous producer of the prefabricated metal home of the postwar era was the Lustron Corporation, which manufactured an all-steel house that it boasted could be sold for $7,000. The Nagel Residence, constructed in 1950 by Brack Implements of Great Bend, is the Newport Deluxe two-bedroom model with a "Dove Gray" exterior and green roof tiles. There were eight Lustron dealers in Kansas - including Brack Implements in Great Bend. The Nagel House was one of nine Lustron houses to be built in the Crescent Park Addition of Great Bend.
