First Methodist Episcopal Church

Picture of property 946 Vermont St.
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2019-03-14

Architect: John G. Haskell
Category: religious facility

The First Methodist Episcopal Church has been continually used as a religious facility since 1891 and is in downtown Lawrence, Kansas, adjacent to the city’s Original Townsite plat. The oldest portion of the building was designed by John G. Haskell in the Romanesque Revival architectural style in 1888 and built between 1889 and 1891. The building was expanded in 1962 with an L-shaped, Modern addition designed by Robert & Ericson to be used as an education wing. A third addition was added in 1987 to the east of the 1962 addition. The church building retains good historic integrity of location, setting, design, materials, and workmanship that allow the building to convey its architectural significance from its original construction through to the 1960s addition.

First United Methodist Church of Lawrence Oregon-California Trail Segment

Picture of property 867 US-40 Hwy
Lawrence vicinity (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2016-04-05

Architect: Not Applicable
Category: road-related; transportation

This 0.6-acre remnant of the Oregon and California trails network is part of the eastern (beginning) section of the combined trail, which emigrants passed over on the first few days of their journey west. One of the most important resources in this initial portion of the trail was Big Springs, a reliable water source lying approximately nine miles west of these two swales. Active between 1840 and circa 1860, these swales were nominated under Criterion A for their association with transportation and exploration/settlement along the combined route of the Oregon and California trails. This site's associative significance and similarity to related trail sites suggest that associated artifact assemblages may be present; they were therefore also nominated under Criterion D. Due to current transportation developments within the immediate vicinity, this site is all that remains of a larger segment.

French, Charles & Elizabeth Haskell, House

Picture of property 1300 Haskell Avenue
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2012-10-09

Architect: unknown
Category: single dwelling
Thematic Nomination: Historic Resources of Lawrence (2001)

Charles and Elizabeth Haskell French settled on the outskirts of Lawrence and built this house over many years beginning in 1869. The residence is one of three in a row along present-day Haskell Avenue that once belonged to the well-known Haskell family, which arrived with the town's earliest settlers from New England in 1854. Elizabeth's brother was architect John Haskell, and he may have played a role in the design and construction of his sister's house. This gable-front-and-wing dwelling reflects the National Folk house type that was popular in the mid- and late-19th century. National Folk houses descend from earlier folk building traditions in eastern and southern parts of the United States, but were constructed with industrially produced lumber, roofing, and nails which were transported on the railroad network. National Folk houses are further categorized by form and/or floor plan. In addition to the gable-front-and-wing, examples in Lawrence include the I-house, hall-and-parlor, and pyramidal house types. It was nominated for its local significance in the area of architecture.

Fuller House

Picture of property 1005 Sunset Drive
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2011-02-12

Architect: Fuller, Ferdinand
Category: single dwelling

Ferdinand Fuller, an architect and one of Lawrence's first residents, built this residence for his family in the early 1860s. He arrived in the Kansas Territory on August 1, 1854 as one of 29 men in the first party of settlers sent west by the New England Emigrant Aid Society and was elected vice-president of the first legally constituted town association. He designed several buildings in early Lawrence including North College (the first building on the campus of the University of Kansas), the Free State Hotel (burned during the sacking of Lawrence), and the original Central School. The Fuller family lived in this residence until the mid-1880s by which point a substantial rear addition had already been erected. The property was nominated to the state register for its associations with Ferdinand Fuller and for its mid-nineteenth century architecture.

Gorrill, Robert William and Helen Baldwin, Farmstead

Picture of property 984 N. 1800 Road
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2011-08-13

Architect: Migliaio, Mark Vincent, stone mason
Category: agricultural outbuilding; single dwelling

The Robert and Helen Gorrill Farmstead is located in a rural, but rapidly developing, area northwest of Lawrence in Douglas County. The Gorrill family settled on this land in 1872 and remained there until 1944. Gorrill hired Italian-born stonemason Mark Vincent Migliario to build the limestone residence in the early 1880s. Migliario reportedly erected several other stone residences in the area. The Kansas State Agricultural Census depicts a diversified subsistence farm from 1875-1925, with a small number of horses, dairy cows, and the production of corn and hay for feeding cattle and swine for sale and slaughter. Today, the farmstead consists of a limestone residence, a bank barn, a granary, and a rock-lined well - all developed in the early 1880s. The property was nominated for its association with local settlement and agricultural history.

Listed in National Register 1966-10-15

National Historic Landmark, 7/4/1961

Architect: unknown
Category: school

Founded in 1884, Haskell Institute was one of the first large off-reservation boarding schools for Indian students established by the Federal government. With the exception of the Haskell Institute Cemetery, no structures remain from the earliest period of building and development extending from 1884 to 1894. There are five buildings, which date from the secondary period of expansion, between 1895 and 1915. The third period of development at the Institute extended from the 1920s until the mid 1930s. There are six structures, which date from this period and are thematically related to the school's historical development. Today, Haskell continues to serve the educational needs of American Indian and Alaska Native people from across the United States.
