Augusta Frisco Depot

Picture of property 618 State Street
Augusta (Butler County)
Listed in State Register Nov 20, 2010

Architect: The Saint Louis and San Francisco Railway Company
Area of Significance: rail-related
Architectural Style(s): Bungalow/Craftsman

The St. Louis and San Francisco Railway Line built its first depot in Augusta in 1880, but that building burned in 1909. Plans for a new depot were immediately drawn up, and it closely resembled one of Frisco's six standard combination depots with a passenger waiting area at one end and a freight room at the opposite end. A detached baggage building was erected immediately east of the depot in 1917, and the two buildings were joined together under a single roof in the 1930s. Passenger service ended in 1960, and Frisco abandoned the building in 1984. It was nominated for its association with local transportation history.

Loomis-Parry Residence

Picture of property 1003 State St
Augusta (Butler County)
Listed in National Register Jul 8, 2009

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: secondary structure; single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Bungalow/Craftsman; Late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movements

Built in 1917, the Loomis-Parry Residence is located north of downtown Augusta in a neighborhood of large late 19th- and early 20th-century single-family residences. Widower Henrietta Loomis commissioned the construction of the house for herself and her daughter Grace. The Loomis family, traditionally farmers, owned land in Butler County where oil was discovered in the early 1900s. Income generated from the oil financed the construction of this residence in Augusta. No reference to the architect or builder has been found in local histories, newspapers, or family documents. Nevertheless, the house's architecture features a distinct combination of several popular early 20th century styles including Craftsman, Tudor Revival, and Classical Revival. It has remained in the same family since 1917, and is nominated for its architecture.

Moyle, John, Building

Picture of property 605 & 607 N State Street
Augusta (Butler County)
Listed in National Register Jun 27, 2014

Architect: Switzer, Joseph
Area of Significance: hotel
Architectural Style(s): Commercial Style

The three-story Moyle building was completed in 1918 to house retail spaces and a hotel. The building was constructed during a time of rapid growth and development in Augusta, largely in response to the booming oil and gas industry in surrounding Butler County. Local oilman John Moyle served as secretary of Augusta's Commercial Club during this period and was president of the local Chamber of Commerce when he set into motion plans for the construction of this building in the downtown. Moyle hired Joseph R. Switzer to design and oversee the building’s construction by contractor A. H. Krause. The building originally was used as a hotel, with the office and other retail spaces occupying the first floor. Guest rooms occupied the second and third floors. The hotel does not appear to have been overly ornate or outfitted with the latest technological accommodations. Rather, it appears to have been a well-built, modest hotel with 32 small, individual rooms for guests. Though private, these rooms did not have kitchen or bath facilities or any built-in features. The shared bathrooms were located at the west end of each floor. It was nominated for its local significance in the area of commerce.

Viets Block

Picture of property 427, 429, & 431 State Street
Augusta (Butler County)
Listed in National Register Apr 16, 2012

Architect: Switzer, J.
Area of Significance: department store; specialty store; multiple dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Commercial Style

The Viets Block is a two-story building located on the southwest corner of the intersection of State Street and 5th Street in downtown Augusta. This key corner building, which occupies three city lots, developed over many years in the early 20th century and today retains its Commercial-style appearance, its traditional storefronts and recessed entrances, tile entry, and glass transoms. Mercantile proprietor Charles A. Viets developed the property in about 1900 and later contributed to major renovations in 1916 and 1923, which gave the building its current appearance. The building's first floor housed two regionally important department stores - the Viets clothing and dry goods store during the early 1900s and later Calvert's department store. The second floor served as meeting space for the local Elks lodge for about twenty years. It was nominated for its local commercial history and its Commercial-style architecture.
