Santa Fe Hospital

Picture of property 600 SE Madison
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2016-10-11

Architect: Carlander, Guy A.
Category: hospital

The Santa Fe Hospital Association, founded in 1884, built the existing hospital in 1930 to replace a former hospital at this location. The largest of the railroad's hospitals, the Topeka hospital not only provided patient care but also served as home to Santa Fe's Hospital Association, the railroad's chief surgeon, and the medical dispensary. The hospital signifies Santa Fe's commitment to the capital city and is a physical reflection of the shared history of Topeka and Santa Fe as the railroad and city grew. The building's period of significance spans from the building's construction in 1930 to 1966, reflecting the date of federal legislation creating Medicare and the hospital opening its doors to the public. Renamed Memorial Hospital in 1972 the hospital closed in 1989 after filing for bankruptcy; the last of Santa Fe's seven hospitals to do so.

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.

Shannon Brown House

Picture of property 1321 Lakeside
Topeka (Shawnee County)
Listed in National Register 2022-05-19

Architect: Walter E. Glover
Category: domestic

The Shannon Brown House is important for its association with the growth and development of Topeka’s affluent Westboro Neighborhood. The house, built in 1929 for Mr. and Mrs. Shannon Brown, was designed by Topeka architect Walter E. Glover located on Lakeside Drive in the Westboro neighborhood that was being developed by partners Tinkham Veale and M. Roy Linscott. Driven by the wide acceptance of the personal automobile and thriving economy of the 1920s, the Westboro neighborhood reflects the city’s growth and, specifically the move toward new residential neighborhoods outside of the city center. A sub-style of the Colonial Revival style of architecture, the Dutch Colonial Revival-style is characterized by its gambrel roof form and symmetrical facade with accentuated central entrance and multi-light windows. The Brown House is an excellent example of the style distinguished by its gambrel roof with flared eaves, full width shed dormers, and symmetrical front facade with multi-light windows flanking a finely detailed central entrance.

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.
