National Historic Landmark, 12/19/1960

Architect: Not listed
Category: fortification

Fort Leavenworth is the oldest US army fort in continuous existence west of the Mississippi River. Established in 1827 as a frontier post to protect trade on the Santa Fe Trail, it also became essential to overland expansion along the Oregon-California Trail. In 1834 the fort became headquarters for the US Dragoons, the army's first permanent mounted regiment. During the Mexican War, the Army of the West left from Fort Leavenworth. When Kansas achieved territorial status in 1854, Governor Andrew Reeder first had his office at the fort. During the Civil War, the fort was a critical western linchpin for the Union, serving as an arsenal and training point. After the Civil War, Colonel Benjamin Grierson formed the black 10th Cavalry Regiment that distinguished itself throughout the frontier. Fort Leavenworth is the home of the US Army Command and General Staff College, the highest ranked school in the army educational system. Also on the fort are the "Rookery" (c. 1830), which is the oldest continuously occupied residence in Kansas; the Post Chapel (1872); the Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery; and the Buffalo Soldier Monument honoring the 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry regiments.

Helmers Manufacturing Company Building

Picture of property 300 Santa Fe Street/2500 South Second Street
Leavenworth (Leavenworth County)
Listed in National Register 2009-10-08

Architect: unknown
Category: manufacturing facility

The Helmers Manufacturing Company Building was built in 1909 to accommodate an expanding furniture manufacturing business. What began as a small manufacturer of barber chairs that operated out of two downtown storefronts in the late 1880s, expanded into a regional furniture company with larger facilities in Leavenworth and Kansas City. Like many industrial buildings of this vintage, the Helmers building has a very plain, utilitarian design with load-bearing brick walls and heavy timber framing. Features that reflect evolving industrial building technology include steel lintels that provide the structural capacity for grouped windows and modern mechanical systems - most notably light, heat, and fire safety - that improved working conditions and building safety. The company operated out of this building until 1940. The property was nominated as a good example of an early 20th century manufacturing facility constructed at the juncture of traditional and modern building technologies.
