Architect: Wilson, Fred S.
Category: other

The Simmons Funeral Home in Kansas City was constructed in 1927 to serve as Dr. David E. Clopper's 20-room hospital. Clopper was an instrumental figure in Argentine, serving as mayor, president of the Argentine State Bank, and worked for many years as a surgeon for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. Upon his death in 1935, George Simmons and his son Gib purchased and refurbished the building for use as a mortuary. They had been in business since 1895 and would eventually expand the funeral home to adapt to business and industry changes. Five generations of the Simmons family worked in this building until the business was sold in 2007. The building was designed by Kansas City architect Fred S. Wilson in the Mission and Craftsman styles. Elements of these styles exhibited on this building include the low-pitched clay tile roof, terra cotta and cast concrete ornamentation, tall casement windows, and decorative iron ornamentation. The building was nominated for its local significance in the areas of architecture and commerce.

Picture of property 2511 Metropolitan Avenue
Kansas City (Wyandotte County)
Listed in National Register 2013-10-09

Architect: Unknown
Category: religious facility

St. John the Divine Catholic Church is located in the Argentine neighborhood of Kansas City, Kansas, and is nominated for its local significance in the area of ethnic history. For more than 50 years, St. John the Divine served as the centerpiece of religious life for the Mexican-American Catholic community of Argentine. The building was built in 1887 as a frame Methodist church, but was severely damaged during a 1903 flood, which led to a major renovation from 1909 to 1913. The building was expanded, a brick veneer was added to the exterior, and a bell tower was constructed. The Catholic Diocese acquired the building in 1937 as a mission. The parishes of St. John the Divine and Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Armourdale were consolidated following the collapse of the Mount Carmel church after the 1951 flood. St. John was again expanded to add office and residential space. The building was maintained and adorned by its parishioners, reflecting vernacular Mexican and Spanish art and culture. The property played a significant role in the religious and social community of Argentine.

Saint Margaret's Hospital sits atop a hill in a residential neighborhood approximately two miles south of the downtown commercial center and about three blocks west of Interstate 70. The board of Saint Margaret's Hospital, founded in 1886, constructed this building in 1954 to replace their older sprawling hospital complex.

Designed by Minneapolis architect S. C. Smiley and built in 1954, Saint Margaret's Hospital exhibits Modern Movement architectural treatments, including masonry banding and rectangular massing. The concrete building has buff brick walls with limestone and dark brown brick accents. The building was constructed during a period of extensive hospital improvement projects throughout the country and reflects the design changes adopted nationwide following medical advancements made during World War II.

Town House Hotel

Picture of property 1021 N 7th Street Trafficway
Kansas City (Wyandotte County)
Listed in National Register 2014-06-27

Architect: Stern, Eugene John
Category: hotel

Constructed in 1951 in the heart of downtown Kansas City, Kansas, the Town House Hotel illustrates the community's intense desire for a convention hotel, which was believed to be a key component of a thriving metropolis. City officials, businessmen, and local citizens were involved in the decades-long pursuit of this hotel that was finally realized with the building's completion in August 1951. Architect Eugene John Stern began designing the hotel in 1929 with a wide array of amenities and luxurious decorative materials, modifying the drawings when construction actually began more than a decade later. It reflects the Modern Movement design aesthetic popular at the time of construction, particularly the use of corner windows, although the massing, streamlined exterior, and interior ornament evoke the grand high-rise hotels of the 1920s and 1930s. The fifteen-story building was designed with all of the amenities commonly provided in a city hotel of this status, including a grand lobby, numerous ballrooms and gathering spaces, and double-loaded corridors lined with guest rooms (now apartment units). The building operated as Kansas City's largest downtown hotel from 1951 until it was converted to residential apartments in 1978. It was nominated for its local significance in the areas of commerce and architecture.
