Fuller House

Picture of property 1005 Sunset Drive
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2011-02-12

Architect: Fuller, Ferdinand
Category: single dwelling

Ferdinand Fuller, an architect and one of Lawrence's first residents, built this residence for his family in the early 1860s. He arrived in the Kansas Territory on August 1, 1854 as one of 29 men in the first party of settlers sent west by the New England Emigrant Aid Society and was elected vice-president of the first legally constituted town association. He designed several buildings in early Lawrence including North College (the first building on the campus of the University of Kansas), the Free State Hotel (burned during the sacking of Lawrence), and the original Central School. The Fuller family lived in this residence until the mid-1880s by which point a substantial rear addition had already been erected. The property was nominated to the state register for its associations with Ferdinand Fuller and for its mid-nineteenth century architecture.

Picture of property 984 N. 1800 Road
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2011-08-13

Architect: Migliaio, Mark Vincent, stone mason
Category: agricultural outbuilding; single dwelling

The Robert and Helen Gorrill Farmstead is located in a rural, but rapidly developing, area northwest of Lawrence in Douglas County. The Gorrill family settled on this land in 1872 and remained there until 1944. Gorrill hired Italian-born stonemason Mark Vincent Migliario to build the limestone residence in the early 1880s. Migliario reportedly erected several other stone residences in the area. The Kansas State Agricultural Census depicts a diversified subsistence farm from 1875-1925, with a small number of horses, dairy cows, and the production of corn and hay for feeding cattle and swine for sale and slaughter. Today, the farmstead consists of a limestone residence, a bank barn, a granary, and a rock-lined well - all developed in the early 1880s. The property was nominated for its association with local settlement and agricultural history.

Founded in 1884, Haskell Institute was one of the first large off-reservation boarding schools for Indian students established by the Federal government.

There are five buildings, which date from the secondary period of expansion, between 1895 and 1915. The third period of development at the Institute extended from the 1920s until the mid 1930s. There are six structures, which date from this period and are thematically related to the school's historical development. Today, Haskell continues to serve the educational needs of American Indian and Alaska Native people from across the United States.

House, Edward, House

Picture of property 1646 Massachusetts Street
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2007-04-18

Architect: Not listed
Category: single dwelling

The Edward House House (c. 1894) is significant as an example of balloon-frame Free Classic Queen Anne residential architecture. The Queen Anne style became the dominant residential style in America from 1880 until 1910. Known for its asymmetry and rich surface textures, the style provided an opportunity for both high-style designers and vernacular builders to incorporate some or all elements of the Queen Anne in residential architecture. Queen Anne features on this house include a steep hipped roof with lower cross gables, tall narrow windows, and decorative eave brackets.

Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2013-04-16

Architect: unknown
Category: agricultural outbuilding; animal facility; single dwelling; storage

Walter and Fannie Kibbee developed a small 15-acre farmstead on the outskirts of Lawrence in the early 20th century. They raised small numbers of cattle, milk cows, poultry, and swine, produced butter and eggs for sale, and farmed a few acres in alfalfa and other crops. They sold the farm in 1920 to Conrad and Bertha Altenbernd, who farmed the property until 1947. The property was annexed by the City of Lawrence in 1959. Today, the collection of six farm buildings is now within the city limits amongst mid-20th century development. The buildings include a Dutch Colonial Revival-style residence, gable-roof barn, chicken house, outhouse, garage, and shed. The farmstead displays an abundant use of concrete, a popular building material on Kansas farmsteads in the 1910s. It was nominated as part of the Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of agriculture and architecture.
