1927 Hillsboro Water Tower

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

Architect: Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Company
Area of Significance: 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.

Picture of property 536 N. Broadway
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in State Register May 13, 2006

Architect: Lorentz Schmidt
Area of Significance: civic meeting hall
Architectural Style(s): Queen Anne

This building was nominated for its architecture and its association with a social organization for women that was significant for its contribution to the promotion of the arts. Originally constructed as the residence of Judge Sankey in 1887, two additions have been made to the original two-and-one half story Queen Anne home. The first addition, done in the Commercial style, was completed in 1925. In 1931, George Siedhoff was hired as the contractor for an Art Deco addition designed by Lorenz Schmidt. Louise Caldwell Murdock founded the 20th Century Club as a part of the Chautauqua movement in January 1899. The 20th Century Club grew from 110 members at its inception to over 1,500 members in 1963. The club purchased the Judge Sankey home in 1923 to use as a permanent clubhouse. The 20th Century club continually worked to promote performing arts, literature, and science in Wichita.

800 West Douglas Block

Picture of property 809, 811 and 815 W Douglas
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register Oct 22, 2004

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: specialty store; commerce; business
Architectural Style(s): Commercial

The 800 West Douglas Historic District (809, 811, and 815 West Douglas) in Wichita was nominated for its association with the early town of Delano, located just west across the Arkansas River from Wichita. In 1880, Delano was incorporated into the City of Wichita as its fifth ward. Today the area is known as "West Wichita." Between 1887 and 1906 construction of the three contiguous, two-story commercial/residential buildings by prominent business men, Christian Kimmerle, Fred W. Israel, and L. Frank Means, helped turn Delano into a thriving commercial district during the first two decades of the 20th century. The 800 West Douglas Block is one of the only remaining pieces of the once thriving Delano commercial district.

900 Block North Seventh Street Historic District

Picture of property 901, 905, 907, 909, 911 North 7th Street
Garden City (Finney County)
Listed in National Register Sep 18, 1998

Architect: Not listed
Area of Significance: single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Colonial Revival; Prairie School

The 900 block of North 7th Street in Garden City developed during the early 20th century into one of the city's finest residential areas, and it reflects the growth of this ranching, agricultural, and industrial community. Local bankers, lawyers, merchants and ranchers flocked to the North 7th Street neighborhood to build their homes. The neighborhood is locally known as Silk Stocking Row because of the saying around town that the people living on 7th Street were the only ones who could afford silk stockings. The small district includes five single-family residences that reflect a variety of turn-of-the-century architectural styles including Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and Four Square.

Abel Residence

Picture of property 2601 Paseo
Great Bend (Barton County)
Listed in National Register Mar 2, 2001

Architect: Brack Implements, Great Bend, Kansas (builder)
Area of Significance: secondary structure; single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Modern Movement; Other
Thematic Nomination: Lustron Houses of Kansas

The Abel Residence is nominated for its architectural significance as one of fewer than 100 extant Lustron houses in Kansas. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, architectural pundits heralded the prefabricated house -particularly the metal house - as the wave of the future. The most famous producer of the prefabricated metal home of the postwar era was the Lustron Corporation, which manufactured an all-steel house that it boasted could be sold for $7,000. The Abel Residence, constructed in 1949 by Brack Implements of Great Bend, is the Westchester Deluxe two-bedroom model with a \"Surf Blue\" exterior and \"Dove Gray\" roof tiles. There were eight Lustron dealers in Kansas - including Brack Implements in Great Bend. The Abel Residence was the only Lustron house to be built in the Hacienda Addition of Great Bend.

Abernathy Furniture Company Factory - Plant K (Boundary Increase)

Picture of property 1100 N 2nd St
Leavenworth (Leavenworth County)
Listed in National Register Apr 5, 2016

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: industrial district
Architectural Style(s): Other

Hemmed in at their original site at North 2nd and Seneca streets, the Abernathy Furniture Company (1883) expanded with the construction of a new plant in 1926. Plant K, a complex of four brick buildings located one-half mile north of the existing Abernathy Furniture Company Factory, is significant under Criterion A in the area of Commerce. Plant K enabled the Abernathy Furniture Company to double its production capacity and to continue the manufacture and distribution of furniture in an era when many of its local competitors were closing operations. Abernathy Furniture Company was among the longest operating industries in Leavenworth and was one of the largest furniture manufacturers in the region. The original Abernathy Furniture Company Factory complex at 200-210 Seneca Street was listed individually in the National Register of Historic Places in 2004 for its significance in the areas of commerce and architecture. The historic context for Plant K is within the period of significance (1883 to 1950) documented by the National Register nomination for the original Abernathy Furniture Company Factory, though Plant K's period of significance begins in 1926 with its construction. The addition of Plant K creates a new discontiguous district, as the two complexes are geographically separate, the space between the two complexes lacks significance, and visual continuity is not a factor of its historic significance.
