Gordon Building

Picture of property 900 & 904 S. Kansas Ave.
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register Oct 20, 2010

Architect: Squires, Frank
Area of Significance: specialty store; warehouse; commerce
Architectural Style(s): Classical Revival; Commercial

The Gordon Building is a four-story reinforced concrete, stone, and brick building located at a prominent intersection in downtown Topeka. Local architect Frank Squires designed the building, which was built in 1911. The Gordon Building provided retail and warehouse space for Karlan Furniture from 1914 until the 1980s. The exterior features blond brick with Classical Revival-style terra cotta details. A 1966 tornado destroyed the building’s original double-hung windows on the north and west elevations, and the openings were enclosed with concrete blocks. The blocks were removed in 2010 and new double-hung windows installed to mimic the building's historic appearance. Non-historic aluminum storefront windows and doors, transom coverings, and an awning were also removed as part of the recent rehabilitation. It was nominated for its association with local commercial history and its turn-of-the-century Classical Revival-style architecture.

Picture of property 915 SW Buchanan
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register Jan 20, 2012

Architect: Wilder and Wight
Area of Significance: domestic
Architectural Style(s): Neoclassical

The Harmon House is located in a close-in turn-of-the-20th-century neighborhood that is 11 blocks west of the commercial district lining Kansas Avenue, eight blocks west of the Kansas State Capitol, and just three blocks west of Topeka High School. The neighborhood lining 800 and 900 blocks of Buchanan Street was historically known as Governor's Row or Governor's Square and includes impressive turn-of-the-century residences including ones designed by Holland and Squires and Wight and Wilder. John C. Harmon, a local mortgage banker, commissioned the Kansas City-based architectural firm of Wilder and Wight to design a residence. He may have known Edward T. Wilder, who was from Topeka. The house was built by local contractor Harry S. Douglas in the Neoclassical style. Key elements of the style are reflected in the home's monumental portico, symmetry, elaborate columns, porch and roofline balustrades, decorative window and door surrounds, multi-light windows, and overhanging eaves with dentils. The property includes a contributing carriage house, well house, and modern garage. It is nominated for its architecture.

Hopkins House

Picture of property 6033 SE US Highway 40
Tecumseh (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register Jan 16, 2009

Architect: Eli Hopkins
Area of Significance: agricultural outbuilding; hotel; single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Greek Revival

Located east of Tecumseh along U.S. 40, which follows the route of the Oregon Trail, the property for this house was acquired by Eli Hopkins circa 1855 when his family moved to Shawnee County from Missouri and erected this impressive two-story Greek Revival-style residence in 1858. First established in 1852, two years before Kansas Territory was opened to white settlement, Tecumseh was one of the territory's first communities and an early center of proslavery activity. Unlike many early proslavery residents who chose to leave Kansas in the late 1850s, Eli Hopkins and his Tecumseh neighbors stayed in the state and pledged their loyalty to the Union. The Hopkins family lived in this house until 1897. The property is significant for its association with early Shawnee County leader Eli Hopkins, Kansas territorial history, and as a rare example of Greek Revival architecture in Kansas.
