Radical United Brethren Church

Picture of property 333 Elmore
Lecompton (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2016-08-13

Architect: Unknown
Category: city hall; religious facility

Lecompton’s United Brethren Church (UBC) was organized in 1858, and by the early 1880s, it was one of four denominations in the town of approximately 300 people. The UBC established Lane University, using that school’s building as a meeting space. When the Radical United Brethren Church split from the main UBC denomination in 1889, Lecompton’s congregation of 100 found themselves without a place to gather, as Lane University was considered property of the UBC. As a result the congregation constructed a wooden building in 1892 that burned in 1906. The 1907 Radical United Brethren Church was constructed atop the former building’s foundation. This stone building served the local Radical United Brethren congregation through 1927 when services and committee meetings ceased. From 1933 to 2003, this building served as Lecompton’s City Hall and Community Building.

The St. Luke AME Church was built in 1910. The red brick building which has twin towers on its west front, shows Gothic influences and has numerous lancet windows, some of which are stained glass. The St. Luke congregation has been an important part of the cultural life of Lawrence's African-American community since it was organized in 1862. This building also is associated with the poet and author Langston Hughes. As a twelve-year-old in 1914, Hughes was sent to live with his "Auntie Reed" in Lawrence; she saw that he went to services and Sunday School every week. Hughes credited his experiences at St. Luke with influencing his writing. It was nominated for its local significance in the areas of architecture and ethnic heritage.
