Strong, Henry and Elenora, House

Picture of property 1916 Beck Street
Manhattan (Riley County)
Listed in State Register 2009-11-07

Architect: Henry Strong
Category: single dwelling

Henry and Elenora Strong were born in Bolton, Connecticut, and were active in the local Congregational Church. They married in 1859 and moved to the Kansas territory where Henry had previously worked hauling freight between Leavenworth and Denver. They became members of Manhattan's newly established First Congregational Church and were active in early efforts to establish a school for area children. Henry drafted and constructed the house in 1867, with his New England heritage evident in his craftsmanship. They built the two-story vernacular stone house on the outskirts of town in a style similar to the earlier Federal style found in New England. The original house is a simple two-story box with a side-gabled roof, a center entrance, and doors and windows organized in strict symmetry. It was built of limestone from his own quarry at the foot of nearby Bluemont Hill. The farmstead outbuildings are no longer extant, and the house features two 1950s additions. A mid-twentieth neighborhood has developed around the former farmstead. The property was nominated for its association with the early settlement of Manhattan and as an example of a mid-nineteenth century vernacular stone house.

Walters, Daniel and Maude, House

Picture of property 100 S Delaware Avenue
Manhattan (Riley County)
Listed in National Register 2012-10-17

Architect: Walters, Daniel (presumed)
Category: single dwelling

Completed in 1928, most likely from a design by the original owner, architect Daniel Walters, the dwelling reflects the continued popularity of the Craftsman style well into the late 1920s. The house represents the work of a skilled architect who modified a standard Craftsman bungalow by incorporating key features of the Tudor Revival style. At the time of its completion, Walters owned and operated Walters Sand Company and it is likely he oversaw the construction of the house. Additionally, three of Walters' brothers owned and operated various construction-related companies in Manhattan - Frank had a plumbing contracting company, Karl ran a lumber business, and B.K. operated a paving business - and it is likely they completed work on the house. The house and associated garage were built at what was then the west edge of the city limits, and illustrate the pattern of expansion of residential construction increasingly distant from downtown that took place in the 1920s as a result of economic and population growth, as well as widespread use of the automobile. It was nominated as part of the "Late Nineteenth Century and Early Twentieth Century Residential Resources in Manhattan, Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of community planning and development and architecture.

Young Buck Site (14RY402)

Picture of property Address Restricted
Manhattan (Riley County)
Listed in National Register 2015-01-27

Architect: N/A
Category: archaeological site

The Young Buck site (14RY402) along the wooded south bank of Wildcat Creek in Riley County is the location of a prehistoric Native American settlement. Recent archaeological investigations have yielded evidence of prehistoric habitation dating to the Woodland (AD 1-1000) and Late Prehistoric (AD 1000-1500) periods. The investigation targeted areas of potential future development identified by the City of Manhattan. The evaluation of this site also heavily informed the historic context and registration requirements in the Prehistoric Sites of Wildcat Creek Watershed multiple property nomination. The 2.5-acre Young Buck site was nominated for its potential to yield significant information in the area of prehistoric archeology.
