Babbitt in 1887 and to Albert Doerr, a successful businessman and former state representative, in 1907. The exterior features elaborate spindle work, fish scale shingles, and an asymmetrical form typical of Queen Anne residences of the period.

Boyd's Ranch Site & the Pawnee Fork Crossing (Dry Route)

Picture of property Address Restricted
Larned vicinity (Pawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2013-07-17

Architect: N/A
Category: transportation

Both the Pawnee Fork Crossing and Boyd's Ranch were located along the 1859 branch of the Dry Route of the Santa Fe Trail. The Dry Route is named as such because it was a route along the trail that provided few stops along the way for water. The crossing was used by travelers headed to Fort Larned and by mail wagons and stagecoaches, who preferred the shorter route. The popularity of this crossing and its location near Fort Larned, which was established in 1859, eventually led to the establishment of a road ranch in 1865. At his ranch, A. H. Boyd provided provisions to hunters in the area and built a wooden bridge at the crossing that he turned into a toll bridge. It was nominated for its significance in the areas of transportation, commerce, and social history, and it has the potential to yield additional important information related to trail ranches and crossings.

Garfield (Pawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2013-07-17

Architect: N/A
Category: transportation

The Fort Larned Military Road meets the Wet Route of the Santa Fe Trail near this crossing of Coon Creek in Pawnee County, Kansas. The Wet Route, which followed the Arkansas River through this area, was actively used by trail travelers from 1821 to circa 1872. The military road was in use during the years 1859 to circa 1867 and was cut to link Fort Larned to the Wet Route, allowing soldiers to aid and protect travelers along the trail. The nominated site consists of a narrow piece of property adjacent to US Highway 56 at its crossing over Coon Creek with trail-era resources that include distinct cutdowns along the creek's bank, a trail-related dugout, and two sections of trail swales. It was nominated for its significance in the areas of transportation, commerce, and the military, and it has the potential to yield additional important information about trail crossings and early military activities in central Kansas.



Fort Larned National Historical Site

Larned (Pawnee County)
Listed in National Register 1966-10-15

National Historic Landmark, 12/19/1960

Architect: Not listed
Category: military facility

When it was first established in 1859, this post was called "Camp on Pawnee Fork" and then "Camp Alert," and was situated about 3 miles to the east. In June 1860 the camp was moved to its present location and renamed Fort Larned for Colonel Benjamin F. Larned, U.S. Army Paymaster-General (1854-62). Troops stationed at this fort guarded the Santa Fe Trail and took part in many of the campaigns against the Plains tribes. From 1861 to 1868 the fort served as an agency of the Indian Bureau, distributing annuities of food, clothing, and other necessities to the Cheyennes, Arapahoes, Kiowas, and Comanches as agreed under various treaties. The fort was abandoned by the military in July 1878 and the military reservation was sold at public auction in 1884. For many years the fort site was operated as a private farm. Fort Larned is administered by the National Park Service.

Ooten House

Picture of property 507 West 15th Street
Larned (Pawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2001-03-02

Architect: Not listed
Category: secondary structure; single dwelling

The Ooten House (c. 1950) is a front-gabled Lustron House with a Newport Deluxe plan. It is one of eight Lustrons in Larned and one of only ten Newport Deluxe models documented in Kansas. Founded by Carl Strandlund, the Lustron Corporation applied porcelain-enameled steel panel technology to residential designs to address the post-WWII housing shortage. But the company was short-lived (1949-1950) and only 2500 houses were constructed. Although it has been moved from its original location, the Ooten House retains its architectural integrity and meets the criteria for listing as a good example of a Lustron House.
