Listed in State Register 2018-11-17

Architect: Lyman Christy
Category: agricultural outbuilding; animal facility; irrigation facility

The Lyman Christy Farmstead is northwest of Meriden in Jefferson County, Kansas at 9001 Christy Road. Lyman Christy purchased his 160-acre farm in two land sales: the first 80 acres in 1879, and the second 80 acres in 1880. Today, the farmstead’s six contributing buildings sit on a 22-acre piece of the original homestead. The bank barn, built in 1892, is the most notable of the farmstead’s buildings. Near the barn lies a historic loafing shed, chicken coop, oil house, and tool shed. All contribute to the historic integrity of the farmstead. There is also a hay shed, garage, three grain bins and a ranch house, all considered non-contributing resources. The Lyman Christy Farmstead retains a high level of integrity of location, setting, materials, design, workmanship, feeling, and association. The property is nominated as a Farmstead property type described in the “Historic Agriculture-related Resources of Kansas” Multiple Property Documentation Form. The property’s period of significance begins in 1892 with the building of the barn to 1951 when the farm was no longer used for subsistence farming.

The earliest buildings also are associated with the earliest settlement of the township. Built in circa 1862 the western portion of the house is attributed to James Townsend, son-in-law of John Kuykendall who acquired the first patent for the land later to become Maplecroft. By the end of 1873, Hanson Frisbie was the owner of the land. This farm has remained in the Frisbie family for over 100 years, being the center of the family’s agricultural endeavors that included potatoes, apples, and livestock. Spanning from circa 1862 to 1967, the farmstead’s period of significance encompasses the years of its earliest settlement through to Hanson Frisbie’s great-grandson’s tenure.

Newell-Johnson-Searle House

Picture of property 609 Walnut St.
Oskaloosa (Jefferson County)
Listed in National Register 2017-07-10

Architect: Unknown
Category: domestic

The Newell-Johnson-Searle House is associated with the establishment and early development of Oskaloosa. Named for those who owned it during the period of significance (1858-1918), the property reflects layers of occupation, beginning with the ownership of Newell. Although the property has changed since Newell’s occupation, this is the only documented resource associated with this locally significant person. Newell was a co-founder of Oskaloosa and a key figure in the area’s Bleeding Kansas period. After Newell, local banker Francis M. Johnson lived here from 1874 to 1905, renovating the dilapidated frame residence in 1877. Johnson’s grandson, stockman and breeder Francis J. Searle, lived here from 1905 to 1918. He is responsible for the appearance of the homestead as it is today, as he rebuilt much of the house after a fire in 1913.
