Architect: N/A
Category: commercial district

The Lincoln Downtone Historic District reflects the growth of Lincoln from the 1880s through the modern development that emerged in the period following WWII and extended into the 1960s. The district conveys the town’s architectural evolution with prominent styles including Late Victorian, Revivals, Commercial Style, and the Modern Movement in addition to numerous native limestone vernacular resources. The first building boom in the 1880s is represented by the first permanent masonry structures that lined Lincoln Avenue. Twenty percent of the district’s resources were constructed before 1900. Like most Midwest communities, the most common classification of Lincoln’s downtown buildings is the Commercial Style. Forty-four percent of the district’s existing buildings were built between 1900 and 1920. While only sixteen percent of the district’s resources were built after WWII, these modern buildings changed the face of downtown. Lincoln’s role as a center of government for the city and county is an important part of its past and its future with Lincoln City Hall (1913), the U.S. Post Office (1967), and the Lincoln County Courthouse (1910) holding prominent physical and economic positions.

Lincoln (Lincoln County)
Listed in National Register 2020-02-03

Architect: William H Sayler
Category: school
Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of Kansas

Lincoln High School is significant on a local level as a representative of the town’s commitment to public education. The building, constructed in 1922, served the needs of the community for seventy-four years. Lincoln High School is an excellent example of the City High School property type. The school is significant architecturally as a representative of a Collegiate Gothic public school building and the work of Kansas City, Missouri architect William H. Sayler. The School reflects Collegiate Gothic stylistic influences common in schools designed in the post-WWI period. The gabled center entry with gothic-arch surrounds, buttress-like pilasters and the crenulated parapet are characteristics of the style. The school’s design reflects the latest trends in school planning with a separate auditorium and gymnasium and specialized classrooms for the manual training, agriculture, commercial and domestic science departments. Lincoln High School is an intact representative William H. Sayler’s public schools, a specialty throughout his career. Sayler was a talented designer as seen in a variety of buildings in Atchison Kansas, several Elks lodges across the state, as well as in his numerous schools in Kansas during the 1910s and early 1920s.
