Picture of property 410 N 9th Street
Elwood (Doniphan County)
Listed in National Register 2014-06-27

Architect: Wagenknecht, Harry
Category: school

Elwood's Lincoln School was the last building in Doniphan County to be used for racially segregated education. The school replaced McKinley School, which burned in 1934, and served African American students in the Elwood area from 1935 to 1955, when it closed as a result of the Brown v. Topeka Board of Education U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1954 that outlawed racially segregated educational facilities. The building is one of the community's few older buildings, as this area is prone to major floods associated with the nearby Missouri River. In the years after its closure, it served as a community building and library. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of education and African American heritage.



Minier, Abram M., House

Highland (Doniphan County)
Listed in National Register 2014-04-07

Architect: Not listed
Category: domestic

Abram M. Minier, a grandson of John Bayless, a founder of Highland, commissioned the construction of this Craftsman bungalow in 1916.

The catalogue estimated the construction of the house to be $5,000. There were some minor modifications between the published plans and the blueprints for this house. For example, the fireplace was constructed as brick rather than stone, and the interior plan was modified slightly to incorporate a small, screened porch on the rear elevation. The home otherwise contains all the signature Stickley designs including wood shingle siding, exposed rafter tails, a full-width front porch, heavy structural beams, built-in bookcases and seating, and Mission-style hardware. The Minier House was nominated as part of the "Historic Resources of Highland" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the area of architecture.
