Gordon Building

Picture of property 900 & 904 S. Kansas Ave.
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2010-10-20

Architect: Squires, Frank
Category: specialty store; warehouse; commerce

The Gordon Building is a four-story reinforced concrete, stone, and brick building located at a prominent intersection in downtown Topeka. Local architect Frank Squires designed the building, which was built in 1911. The Gordon Building provided retail and warehouse space for Karlan Furniture from 1914 until the 1980s. The exterior features blond brick with Classical Revival-style terra cotta details. A 1966 tornado destroyed the building’s original double-hung windows on the north and west elevations, and the openings were enclosed with concrete blocks. The blocks were removed in 2010 and new double-hung windows installed to mimic the building's historic appearance. Non-historic aluminum storefront windows and doors, transom coverings, and an awning were also removed as part of the recent rehabilitation. It was nominated for its association with local commercial history and its turn-of-the-century Classical Revival-style architecture.

Harmon, John C., House

Picture of property 915 SW Buchanan
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2012-01-20

Architect: Wilder and Wight
Category: domestic

The Harmon House is located in a close-in turn-of-the-20th-century neighborhood that is 11 blocks west of the commercial district lining Kansas Avenue, eight blocks west of the Kansas State Capitol, and just three blocks west of Topeka High School. The neighborhood lining 800 and 900 blocks of Buchanan Street was historically known as Governor's Row or Governor's Square and includes impressive turn-of-the-century residences including ones designed by Holland and Squires and Wight and Wilder. John C. Harmon, a local mortgage banker, commissioned the Kansas City-based architectural firm of Wilder and Wight to design a residence. He may have known Edward T. Wilder, who was from Topeka. The house was built by local contractor Harry S. Douglas in the Neoclassical style. Key elements of the style are reflected in the home's monumental portico, symmetry, elaborate columns, porch and roofline balustrades, decorative window and door surrounds, multi-light windows, and overhanging eaves with dentils. The property includes a contributing carriage house, well house, and modern garage. It is nominated for its architecture.

Hopkins House

Picture of property 6033 SE US Highway 40
Tecumseh (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2009-01-16

Architect: Eli Hopkins
Category: agricultural outbuilding; hotel; single dwelling

Located east of Tecumseh along U.S. 40, which follows the route of the Oregon Trail, the property for this house was acquired by Eli Hopkins circa 1855 when his family moved to Shawnee County from Missouri and erected this impressive two-story Greek Revival-style residence in 1858. First established in 1852, two years before Kansas Territory was opened to white settlement, Tecumseh was one of the territory's first communities and an early center of proslavery activity. Unlike many early proslavery residents who chose to leave Kansas in the late 1850s, Eli Hopkins and his Tecumseh neighbors stayed in the state and pledged their loyalty to the Union. The Hopkins family lived in this house until 1897. The property is significant for its association with early Shawnee County leader Eli Hopkins, Kansas territorial history, and as a rare example of Greek Revival architecture in Kansas.



Hughes Conoco Service Station

Picture of property 400 SW Taylor St
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2011-07-05

Architect: Unknown
Category: specialty store

Built in 1930 at the corner of Fourth and Taylor Streets in Topeka, the Hughes Conoco Service Station was strategically located to be accessible from two primary arterial streets allowing the station to pull in traffic from all directions. Typical of early 20th-century gas stations, this one was built in the Tudor Revival-style to both blend in with its residential surroundings and serve as a corporate advertisement. The brick building features a round-arch entrance, narrow multi-light casement windows, and a steeply pitched side-gable roof. Its 198 square feet include a sales room and two washrooms. In 1956, Edwin Hughes leased the Conoco Station and added a cement block garage to the east elevation. Hughes became one of the first African Americans in Topeka to operate a business outside of Topeka’s established black commercial district and to operate a station selling gas supplied by a major petroleum company. The building was listed in the Register of Historic Kansas Places in 2009, and was nominated to the National Register as part of the “Roadside Kansas” multiple property nomination for its associations with local commercial and transportation history and for its architecture.
