Known for its asymmetry and rich surface textures, the style provided an opportunity for both high-style designers and vernacular builders to incorporate some or all elements of the Queen Anne in residential architecture. Queen Anne features on this house include a steep hipped roof with lower cross gables, tall narrow windows, and decorative eave brackets.

Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2013-04-16

Architect: unknown
Category: agricultural outbuilding; animal facility; single dwelling; storage
Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

Walter and Fannie Kibbee developed a small 15-acre farmstead on the outskirts of Lawrence in the early 20th century. They raised small numbers of cattle, milk cows, poultry, and swine, produced butter and eggs for sale, and farmed a few acres in alfalfa and other crops. They sold the farm in 1920 to Conrad and Bertha Altenbernd, who farmed the property until 1947. The property was annexed by the City of Lawrence in 1959. Today, the collection of six farm buildings is now within the city limits amongst mid-20th century development. The buildings include a Dutch Colonial Revival-style residence, gable-roof barn, chicken house, outhouse, garage, and shed. The farmstead displays an abundant use of concrete, a popular building material on Kansas farmsteads in the 1910s. It was nominated as part of the Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of agriculture and architecture.

Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2019-07-12

Architect: Unknown
Category: commerce
Thematic Nomination: Historic Resources of Lawrence (2014 post-WWII resources)

Klock’s Grocery and Independent Laundry, located at 900 Mississippi Street in Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas, is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under the Historic Resources of Lawrence (Amended) under Criterion A in Commerce and in Ethnic Heritage/ German American. It is locally significant as an example of the evolution of commerce in the surrounding community by a prominent businessman, Fred Klock, of German American decent. Anchored near the historic town center, Klock’s Grocery and Independent Laundry reflects the early 20th-century commercial development in Lawrence, as well as the common mid-century upgrade with its 1959 remodel. It illustrates the City’s commercial patterns, which resulted in the practicality of the use and space. Fred Klock, and his extended family, had a long association with the German American community in Lawrence, and the subject property housed a key commercial enterprise in the community. The period of significance represents the original construction of the building (1921-22) through the subsequent mid-century alterations and industry changes (1969).

Lane-Duncan Stable

Picture of property 1132 W 11th Street
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2011-08-13

Architect: undetermined
Category: agricultural outbuilding; secondary structure

The Lane-Duncan stable is built into the eastern slope of a steep hill located along the northern edge of the campus of the University of Kansas. It is oriented to the east and once had a commanding view of downtown Lawrence and the Kansas River valley, but trees and twentieth-century development have obscured that view. Despite exhaustive research of the historical record, much of this building's early history remains unknown. What is known about this building is that its vernacular Gothic Revival limestone architecture is reflective of the settlement period and that it is a rare surviving example of a stone outbuilding within the current city limits of Lawrence. It is located on south half of James H. Lane's original landholdings. Lane, who likely commissioned the construction of the building, was an important political figure in the early history of Lawrence and Kansas, and this property could yield information about his property holdings. Additionally, the property's subsequent owner, Wesley Duncan, comes from another locally prominent family, and further study of the building could yield information about his use of the structure. In the case of both men, this is the earliest extant resource left on their landholdings. The building was nominated for its architecture and potential to yield information important in history.

Lane-Greenlees House

Picture of property 714 Mississippi Street
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2009-02-21

Architect: unknown
Category: single dwelling

The Greenlees House, located near the historic Old West Lawrence neighborhood, represents five building phases spanning nearly 50 years. Early Kansas Senator James Lane built the first phase of this house in circa 1863 and sold it to newspaper publisher Charles Faris in 1865 whose family made a small addition and occupied the house until 1880. John Greenlees purchased the house in 1893 and lived there until his death in 1947. Greenlees made his fortune in real estate and developing and managing oil interests, and founded the Mutual Oil Company in 1909. Between 1899 and 1911, Greenlees doubled the size of the house by expanding it west and north. He consolidated the house stylistically into an updated and coherent, early 20th century residence with a new comprehensive roof system, large cross gables, and a large front porch with Classical Revival pillars. The resulting appearance resembled a large four-over-four house type. The property was nominated for its associations with entrepreneur John Greenlees.
