Mugan-Olmsted House

Picture of property 819 Avalon Rd.
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2017-03-27

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

The Mugan-Olmsted House is significant as an example of a residence that evolved during development patterns associated with the growth of Lawrence between 1866 and 1956. Patrick Mugan, a trained stonemason, built the first portion of the house around 1866 as a gable-front dwelling. The house was soon expanded, taking on a gable-front-and-wing form. This form was a common building type in the mid-1800s and the two-story version was mostly popular in the northeastern and midwestern states. The Mugan-Olmsted House is atypical in this form due to its construction of stone rather than wood, which was more common. The house continued to change through its ownership by the Mugan and Olmsted families, acquiring a front porch, south sunporch, interior bathrooms, and millwork.

O'Sullivan, John & Anna, Farmstead

Picture of property 710 E 100 Rd
Overbrook vicinity (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2018-06-29

Architect: Unknown
Category: Agricultural District
Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

The property was settled by John and Anna O'Sullivan in 1866 and was developed into a successful family operated cattle and livestock farm. The property has been continuously owned and operated as a family farm by descendants of the O'Sullivans. The farmstead is a cohesive collection of farm and rural residential-related structures that demonstrate development-over-time by reflecting the resources and values of a single family over multiple generations, and by incorporating technological changes into the architectural fabric. The buildings are significant as they convey the feeling and association of a historic Marion Township, Douglas County, Kansas farmstead.

Oak Hill Cemetery

Picture of property 1605 Oak Hill Avenue
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2017-07-10

Architect: Holland Wheeler
Category: cemetery

Oak Hill Cemetery was incorporated during a critical moment of identity for the City of Lawrence, Kansas. Still reeling from Quantrill’s Raid, which destroyed much of the fledgling city in 1863, Oak Hill was founded in part to act as a memorial to the citizens killed in the Raid and in part to establish Lawrence as a settled and sophisticated city on the edge of America’s frontier. Oak Hill is significant both for its connection to the Civil War, Bleeding Kansas, and Quantrill’s Raid and for its place in the urban development of Lawrence, Kansas. Furthermore, as a designed public landscape, majorly attributable to the single hand of Holland Wheeler, an important figure in the development of Lawrence, Oak Hill is a masterful example of Rural Cemetery design in the Midwest.

Oread Historic District

Picture of property Roughly between W 9th & 12th Sts. & the Alleys behind Louisiana & Kentucky Sts.
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2007-10-10

Architect: Not listed
Category: domestic; religious facility; education related
Thematic Nomination: Historic Resources of Lawrence (2001)

Located directly west of the downtown commercial area and east of the University of Kansas campus, the majority of the Oread Historic District falls within the Original town plat, and thus represents one of Lawrence's oldest residential neighborhoods. Not only did it provide easy access to downtown and campus, several churches were either adjacent or located within its boundaries. Central School and later a high school were located on the two south corners of Kentucky and 9th streets. The district contains a variety of residences that represent changing tastes, fashions, and construction methods in American architecture. There are good examples of the large fashionable homes, several more modest National Folk type residences of the working class, and later examples of residential styles that were popular in the early twentieth century.
