This is one of 30 American Indian rock art sites located in the state of Kansas. The majority of the sites are located in four counties in the central part of the state. Smaller numbers are located in southeast and southwestern Kansas. These sites have examples of anthropomorphic figures and human-like forms, animals and animal-like forms, geometric designs, straight lines, and grooves. Several styles of anthropomorphic petroglyphs have been recognized.

The Paradise Water Tower was constructed in 1938 as part of a larger water works improvement project sponsored by the Works Progress Administration. The project employed some 35 men who quarried the stone from the Wellington Ranch south of Paradise and erected the structure in about four months. Common laborers were paid 25 cents per hour and carpenters and masons received 50 cents an hour. This cylindrical structure is made of rusticated limestone blocks, and is 17 feet in diameter, 35 feet tall, and has a capacity of 58,000 gallons. It features a double-door entrance with an Art Deco inspired limestone surround.

Reiff Building

Picture of property 513 Main St.
Dorrance (Russell County)
Listed in National Register 2007-03-15

Architect: Not listed
Category: museum; recreational district

The Reiff Building is not only important for its social, civic, and cultural history, but also because it retains its architectural integrity as an early 20th century commercial style building. In 1910, Harvey Anspaugh purchased three lots in downtown Dorrance. With the assistance of his brother Hiram, they began the design and construction of the two-story limestone building, which would serve both commercial and entertainment functions. A.C. Reiff, who operated a farm supply business out of the building until World War II, purchased the property from Anspaugh soon after its construction. It now houses the collections and displays of the Dorrance Historical Society Museum. Reflective of many late nineteenth and early twentieth century opera houses across Kansas, the Reiff Building featured an opera house on the second floor of a commercial building in the heart of a downtown.



Russell County Jail & Sheriff's Residence

Picture of property 331 North Kansas Street
Russell (Russell County)
Listed in National Register 2012-02-03

Architect: Squires, Charles W.
Category: correctional facility; museum

The Russell County Jail and Sheriff's Residence was designed by Emporia-based architect Charles W. Squires and was built in 1907 by James L. Phinney. The building exhibits the Richardsonian Romanesque architectural style with its two crenellated corner bays or turrets and an imposing one-story porch with a massive stone archway. Although the Squires' original plan called for a brick building, the material was changed to locally quarried limestone, which is abundant and used in other community and private buildings in Russell, including the 1902 courthouse. The building served both as a jail and as a residence for the sheriff and his family until 1958. Other Kansas communities, including Seneca and Washington, erected similar jail facilities. The Russell County Historical Society has operated a museum and genealogy office out of the building since 1968.
