White Cloud vicinity (Brown County)
Listed in National Register 2016-06-27

The Iowa Tribe Community Building was completed in 1940 on tribal lands of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska reservation, about five miles west of White Cloud. The 1.5-story stone community building was constructed by tribal members as part of the New Deal-era Civilian Conservation Corps - Indian Division (CCC-ID), a subset of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The building has served the needs of the Iowa Tribe community over the years as a meeting place for cultural and social events. The three-acre property includes a windbreak to the west of the building that also was constructed in 1940 by the CCC-ID. The Community Building was nominated by the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer (THPO) for the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Missouri, the first property within the state of Kansas to be nominated by a THPO.

Long House

Picture of property 3363 Horned Owl Road
Hiawatha (Brown County)
Listed in State Register 2015-05-09

Architect: Unknown
Category: single dwelling

The Long House is located on a farmstead in northern Brown County and was completed circa 1910. It was the home of widow Hettie Long, her unmarried son Fred, and her son Howard and his family. The residence is an excellent example the Craftsman style exhibited on a foursquare, a common house form of the early 20th century found in rural and urban areas throughout the country. Craftsman stylistic elements include the square porch columns, windows with vertical muntins, low-pitch roof, and wide overhanging eaves. The first-floor interior, in particular, reflects a transition between the earlier Victorian era and the emerging Craftsman movement. The house, possibly built from a catalog plan, appears to be identical to a house in nearby Falls City, Nebraska. An architect or builder for either residence has not been identified. It is nominated for its local significance in the area of architecture.
