Architect: Unknown
Category: commerce

W. H. Gaiser moved his growing carriage business into this new two-story brick building along Wichita's Saint Francis Avenue in 1910, and he expanded it in 1920 to accommodate the shifting focus of his business to the automobile. Gaiser came to Wichita during the booming 1880s and partnered with J. M. Washburn in the Washburn & Gaiser Carriage Works. He took over the business following Washburn's death and specialized in custom work on any type of vehicle, first wagons and carriages and later automobiles. Having embraced the automobile as an important part of his business, he renamed it the W. H. Gaiser Automobile Works, which is still evident on a ghost sign above the storefronts. The business remained in the building until 1957. It was nominated for its local significance in the area of commerce.

Picture of property 1736-1748 N Hillside St
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2016-04-05

Architect: Overend & Boucher
Category: domestic; multiple dwelling

Constructed in 1949-1950, the Grandview Terrace Apartments were nominated under Criterion A as a rare example of a post-World War II, private apartment building in the Fairmount neighborhood in north central Wichita. With the influx of WWII veterans and increase in job opportunities in aviation, the housing shortage in Wichita that began in 1940 and 1941 continued well into the 1950s. Local real-estate women Maud Beech (sister of Beech Aircraft founder) and Marguerite Mollohan took advantage of the unmet demand for modern living. The apartment complex included covered off-street parking as well as a beauty salon, pharmacy and restaurant. The property is also significant under Criterion C as a distinct 1950 Modern building and as a representative of established Wichita architects Overend & Boucher. The Grandview Terrace Apartments reflect the general tenants of the post-World War II Modern apartment building not unlike the federal housing during and after the war. The apartment building was nominated under the Residential Resources of Wichita multiple property nomination as a rare Modern representative of the Conventional Low-Rise Apartment Building property type.

Picture of property 1919 West Douglas
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2010-01-07

Architect: G. W. Ashby (1860-1933), B. Guldner builder
Category: single dwelling

Benjamin Guldner built this transitional Free Classic Queen Anne residence for his family in 1910 using architectural drawings produced by G. W. Ashby of the Radford Architectural Company of Chicago. The Radford Company produced catalogues and trade publications in the early twentieth century, and was significant in the shift away from popular Victorian-era residential architectural styles, such as Eastlake and Queen Anne, to more simplified Free Classic, Craftsman, and Classical Revival styles. This house exhibits that transition with its Queen Anne form and classical details. A primary feature of the Guldner House is its one-story wrap-around porch supported by Ionic fluted square pillars. This property is the only documented Radford Company-designed residence in Kansas at this time. The property was nominated as part of the "Residential Resources of Wichita, 1870-1957" multiple property listing for its architecture.
