Westmoreland vicinity (Pottawatomie County)
Listed in National Register 2013-09-25

Architect: N/A
Category: natural feature; road-related

Scott Spring was a reliable water source near the Rock Creek Crossing of the Oregon and California trails. Its location near this crossing made it a suitable campground while west-bound travelers waited for high waters to recede. The nominated site contains the location of the spring itself, as well as an intact trail segment that includes at least three distinct swales. This site is nationally significant for its association with the Oregon and California trails and for its potential to yield important archeological information.

Trout, George & Virginia, House

Picture of property 615 Elm Street
Wamego (Pottawatomie County)
Listed in National Register 2014-01-08

Architect: Spencer, Francis M. (builder)
Category: domestic

The George and Virginia Trout House was completed in 1896 and was nominated to the National Register for its local significance in the area of architecture. Situated on a prominent corner lot overlooking downtown Wamego, this three-story house reflects the Queen Anne style in its irregular form, asymmetrical arrangement, multiple roof planes, three-story rounded tower with a conical roof, and wood materials. It includes a combination of wood lap siding and fish scale shingles. Its porches and gables lack the delicate spindlework of earlier Queen Anne houses, and instead include classical columns grouped in threes supporting the front porch. The interior retains the ornate radiators, a still-functioning call-box system, an original central vacuum, four ornate and unique fireplaces, a large water reservoir on the third floor with fire hoses, and an impressive display of woodwork throughout the first and second floors. George Trout arrived in Wamego shortly after the Civil War and opened a hardware, lumber, and implement business in partnership with L. B. Leach. He later established a bank, which became the Wamego State Bank in 1906. Trout hired Francis M. Spencer of Topeka to erect the impressive residence, which is believed to have been designed by George Farran, in close collaboration with George and Virginia Trout. The house remained in the Trout family until 1961.
