Senate & Curtis Court Apartments Historic District

Picture of property 900-914 SW Tyler St.
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2015-12-29

Architect: Nelle Peters
Category: domestic; multiple dwelling

Constructed from 1928 to and 1930, the Senate and Curtis Court Apartments illustrate the Tudor Revival style as applied to a multi-family residential building. Nelle Peters, a prominent female architect known for creating practical and efficient apartment buildings, designed the original complex of three buildings. Tudor Revival style elements include the brick veneer cladding with stucco and false half-timbering accents, steeply-pitched gables, crenellated parapets, grouped chimneys, and Tudor arched openings. The interior features heavily-textured plaster walls, ornate plaster and wood lobbies, and decorative arched openings. The Senate and Curtis Court Apartments Historic District was constructed during a great building boom in Topeka’s history when numerous one- to three-story apartment buildings gradually replaced the upper-class mansions that once filled the surrounding neighborhood. Each building has a distinct character and set of features, yet together, they form a unified District that illustrates the architectural trends in Topeka during this time. The period of significance is 1928 to 1930, the period of construction for both buildings.

Shiloh Baptist Church

Picture of property 1201 SW Buchanan Street
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2018-06-29

Architect: Scamell, Ralph E.
Category: religious facility

Shiloh Baptist Church's congregation was established in 1879 by a group of black people from Tennessee and Kentucky who came to Topeka and settled in King's Addition, a few blocks west of the State Capitol. King's Addition was historically also called "Tennessee Town" because of the large number of people who had come from Tennessee. The current building at 12th & Buchanan streets is the congregation's third structure. In 1926 the basement of the nominated building was completed and used for church services before the erection of the unfinished main auditorium in 1928. Between the years 1931 and 1939, the second unit of the church was partially improved, so that services which formerly had been held in the basement could be in the main auditorium. Major construction projects were completed throughout the ensuing years under the tenure of various senior pastors, until the building was completed in 1954. Shiloh Baptist Church is significant for its association with Topeka's African-American community of Tennessee Town and as a unique local example of the combination of Neoclassical and Rustic design.

Shoemaker, J. A., House

Picture of property 1434 SW Plass Ave
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2009-01-22

Architect: Glover, Walter E.
Category: single dwelling

Well-known Topeka architect Walter E. Glover designed and erected the Shoemaker House in 1925 in the College Hill neighborhood north of Washburn University. Glover selected the popular Tudor Revival style, which includes such characteristics as a stucco-finished exterior with decorative half-timbering, steeply pitched roof, brick chimneys, and groups of multi-paned windows. He designed residential, commercial, civic, and educational buildings throughout Topeka and northeast Kansas. This property is nominated as a local example of an architect-designed Tudor Revival-style residence.

South Kansas Avenue Commercial Historic District

Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2015-07-07

Architect: Multiple
Category: commercial district

Topeka's South Kansas Avenue Commercial Historic District includes ten city blocks between 6th Avenue on the north and 10th Avenue on the south. The blocks flanking South Kansas Avenue form the primary historic commercial thoroughfare in the central business district of Topeka. The district incorporates all of the commercial, social, and civic functions necessary for the development of a successful urban center, with evidence of specific building booms and the influence of policy changes, such as urban renewal, present in the variety of building types and styles. The patterns of growth and density of the commercial core paralleled the development of the city as it grew mainly south and west from the original town site. Revitalization efforts in the 1960s and 1970s encouraged larger-scale development, and many businesses relocated away from the traditional commercial center. South Kansas Avenue was left with a concentration of banks, restaurants, and offices for government, utilities, and private companies. The nominated area represents the plethora of architectural styles popular during the course of Topeka's history. Buildings vary in scale from one to 16 stories high and from a narrow city lot to an entire city block in width. It is nominated for its local significance in the areas of commerce and architecture.

St. John African Methodist Episcopal Church

Picture of property 701 SW Topeka Blvd
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2008-10-16

Architect: Louis Wood
Category: religious facility

The Saint John African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church congregation, which traces its roots in Topeka to 1868, met in a place known as the "Alley Barn", located in an alley between Harrison and Van Buren Streets. Near that area were the homes of free African-Americans and many ex-slaves who had migrated to Kansas after the Civil War. In 1877, a prayer circle of the congregation's members was developed into the Methodist Church Mission. Pastor John M. Wilkerson, the Missouri Conference's presiding elder at the time, became the church's first minister. Wilkerson chartered the organization as the St. John African Methodist Episcopal Church, which became the first AME church in Topeka. The thriving congregation purchased the land in 1882. The existing stone church was constructed over a period of years - from 1908 to 1926. Throughout the congregation's 139-year history, various activities have extended St. John AME Church beyond the religious realm and into the political, civic, charitable, and business spheres.
