1927 Hillsboro Water Tower

Picture of property Lots 10 & 11, Block 2, Hill's Second Addition
Hillsboro (Marion County)
Listed in State Register 2011-08-13

Architect: Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Company
Category: public works

The 1927 Hillsboro Water Tower was constructed as part of Hillsboro's first municipal water and sewer system. The first efforts toward a municipal fire protection system in Hillsboro came in 1888, when the city purchased a man-powered water pump. This $700 implement, which consisted of a tank, pump and hose mounted on a two-wheeled wagon, required eight to ten volunteers to operate it. In an 1897 fire that threatened John G. Hill's Badger Lumber Company, the apparatus proved no better than a bucket brigade. This equipment was used until 1900, when - at the apparent urging of Mayor Hill, who had just lost his coal sheds to fire - the city purchased new equipment. In 1912, the year the city established its first fire department, the city's "water system" consisted of wells and cisterns with a capacity of 11,000 gallons. Without adequate water pressure, all the equipment and firemen in the world proved futile against the inevitable infernos - and a dependably clean water supply would have been impossible. Hillsboro's citizens voted in favor of a bond issue in 1926 and a comprehensive water project was completed in 1927. The 75,000-gallon steel-plated water tower was nominated for its local significance in the area of community planning and development.

Bichet, Claude, Farmstead

Picture of property 2959 US Highway 50
Florence vicinity (Marion County)
Listed in State Register 2011-11-19

Architect: Undetermined
Category: domestic

French immigrant Claude Francis Bichet and his wife Sophia settled this property in 1858, two years before the Kansas Territorial Legislature established Marion County’s boundaries and seven years before the county government organized. The property is located in the Cottonwood River valley where some of the area's earliest residents settled, including a group of French-speaking immigrants from France, Belgium, and Switzerland. This French colony centered near Florence developed over a period of forty years, and, by 1885, included over 60 families. The young Bichet family erected a log cabin on this property in about 1859 and later added an impressive two-story limestone wing in 1875. Their son Alphonse Bichet owned the property in the late 19th century and passed it to his son Frederick. The property remains in the Bichet family, and extant farm buildings include an 1875 stone smokehouse and a mid-20th century barn and milkhouse. It is nominated for its association with the early settlement of Marion County and for its architecture.



Bown-Corby School

Picture of property 412 N 2nd Street
Marion (Marion County)
Listed in National Register 2015-04-14

Architect: Voigt, Samuel S.
Category: school

Built in 1929, the Bown-Corby School is an excellent example of Late Gothic Revival architecture. The building has red brick walls with ashlar limestone detailing, projecting bays, buttresses, and quoined stone surrounds, all typical of the architectural style. It retains the original wood and steel windows, which is unusual for a public school building of this age. The building was designed by Wichita-based architect Samuel S. Voigt and served as the town's grade school for 62 years, closing in 1992. It was named in honor of Anna Bown and Jenny Corby, two long-time teachers in the Marion school district. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas" multiple property nomination in the areas of education and architecture.

Donahue's Santa Fe Trail Segment

Picture of property Address restricted
Durham vicinity (Marion County)
Listed in National Register 2016-10-11

Architect: Not applicable
Category: road-related; transportation

Donahue’s Ruts are remnants from the Santa Fe Trail, which was active from 1821 until 1880. In Marion County, the trail’s years of use began with William Becknell’s first expedition to Santa Fe in 1821 and ended in 1866 with the arrival of the railroad. This trail segment was part of the primary route of the Santa Fe Trail before it split between the Mountain and Cimarron routes farther west. This land saw the majority of travelers and traders who traveled between Santa Fe and Missouri. Specifically, this segment was part of the route connecting two major campsites: Lost Spring and Cottonwood Creek.
