Picture of property 8th and Main
Ashland (Clark County)
Listed in National Register Apr 26, 1972

Architect: F. A. Weston
Area of Significance: financial institution
Architectural Style(s): Romanesque

Organized in 1887 by James A. Blair and Oliver Ewart of Medicine Lodge, the First National Bank building was constructed in the same year to house the banking establishment. The two-story Romanesque-style building was designed by F.A. Weston and built by W.A. Ritchie and Company of Winfield. It operated as the First National Bank for about two years, then a state charter was obtained and the name changed to the Farmers and Stockgrowers Bank. The bank received a national charter in 1900 and the name changed to the Stockgrowers National Bank. It remained until 1933 when the stockholders did not want to comply with new national bank regulations, so the name changed to Stockgrowers State Bank. The establishment is still in operation. It was nominated for its contribution to the economic development of Ashland and Clark County as well as for its architecture.

Ashland (Clark County)
Listed in National Register Apr 14, 2015

Architect: Not listed
Area of Significance: clubhouse
Architectural Style(s): Vernacular
Thematic Nomination: New Deal-era Resources of Kansas

The Girl Scout Little House in Ashland was built in 1937 by laborers employed through the Works Progress Administration (WPA), with Ed Burr serving as the project supervisor. The Little House was built to serve the Ashland Girl Scout troop, which formed in about 1924 some 12 years after Juliette Gordon Low established the first American Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Georgia. It was erected in a residential neighborhood on land donated by Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Nunemacher. The local Girl Scout building committee raised funds to complete the project from individuals, businesses, churches, and community groups. The small stone building was dedicated to the community in February 1938, and it has served the Girl Scouts and the Ashland community ever since. The small building is made of locally quarried stone and exhibits the Rustic style typical of New Deal-era buildings. It was nominated as part of the "New Deal-Era Resources of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of social history, government, and architecture.

Stein House

Picture of property 420 Cedar St
Ashland (Clark County)
Listed in National Register Mar 2, 2001

Architect: Merlyn Weidenheimer
Area of Significance: secondary structure; single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Modern Movement; Other
Thematic Nomination: Lustron Houses of Kansas

The Stein House was nominated for its architectural significance as one of fewer than 100 extant Lustron houses in Kansas and the only one in Clark County. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, architectural pundits heralded the prefabricated house as the wave of the future, and during the post-World War II years the Lustron Corporation manufactured an all-steel house. Constructed in 1950 for Dr. Stein, the Stein House is an example of the Lustron Westchester Deluxe Plan with a metal surf blue exterior. The plan was modified and expanded to accommodate the Stein's growing family and included a Lustron garage. Merlyn Weidenheimer of Kinsley was the contractor.
