R.W. Hocker Subdivision, Lot K Spec House (Walker House)

Picture of property 5532 Knox Ave.
Merriam (Johnson County)
Listed in National Register 2017-03-27

Architect: Unknown
Category: single dwelling

The Walker House was one of two speculative Shirtwaist-style houses constructed around 1910 in Merriam’s 40-acre R.W. Hocker Subdivision. Richard Weaver (R.W.) Hocker was a prominent local banker and developer in the Kansas City area. He platted his eight five-acre lot subdivision concurrently with his development of the Hocker Interurban Line. Begun in 1904 this trolley line eventually connected downtown Kansas City, Missouri, with Merriam and points west; it was discontinued in 1927. The house’s parcel now only includes a portion of Lot K due to later residential development. The Walker House is significant for its association with early suburban development associated with the Kansas City regional streetcar lines and for its architecture as a suburban example of the Shirtwaist style.

Fairway (Johnson County)
Listed in National Register 1966-10-15

National Historic Landmark, 5/23/1968

Architect: Not listed
Category: church school

Shawnee Mission was one of many established as a manual training school attended by boys and girls from Shawnee, Delaware, and other Indian nations from 1839 to 1862. At the height of its activity, Shawnee Mission was an establishment of 2,000 acres with 16 buildings, including three large brick structures, which still stand. The school was abandoned in 1864 and for the next sixty years the building served variously as Union Army barracks, a dance hall, dairy bottling plant, apartments, and a boarding house. In 1927, the state bought the three remaining buildings and began restoration work and landscaping on the 12-acre grounds. The property was nominated to the National Register in 1968.

Stilwell Grade School

Picture of property 6415 W 199th Street
Stilwell (Johnson County)
Listed in State Register 2011-11-19

Architect: Undetermined
Category: school

The Stilwell Grade School was built in 1910 following a fire that destroyed the Aubry Rural School. The Aubry and Stilwell areas were growing rapidly in the early twentieth century and area school districts struggled to keep up with the growth. Prior to the destructive fire, Aubry Rural School received an addition to accommodate more students. The new Stilwell school was much bigger than its predecessors and served grades one through 12 until a new high school was constructed across the street in 1920. Stilwell Grade School was built by L. A. Medaris and is an example of a town graded school, which was designed for graded instruction. Graded schools emerged in towns across Kansas after 1900, and they were often built as one- and two-story brick buildings exhibiting common architectural styles of the period. This type of school building was one of the most flexible in terms of student population and could serve grades one through six or eight, while some even served all grades. The Neoclassical style is subtly exhibited on the Stilwell Grade School and is found primarily in the decorative quoining at the corners, raised brick ornamentation, and symmetrical elevations. It is nominated for its architecture and educational history.
