Picture of property 416 E 5th Street
Eureka (Greenwood County)
Listed in National Register Jan 2, 2013

Architect: Harrison, E. A.
Area of Significance: rail-related
Architectural Style(s): Prairie School
Thematic Nomination: Historic Railroad Resources of Kansas

The Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe (ATSF) Depot in Eureka was built in 1917 during a period of economic boom in south-central Kansas after the discovery of oil in Greenwood and Butler counties. This second-generation station was located on the Howard Branch, a 75-mile section of the ATSF line that connected Emporia in Lyon County to the north with Moline to the south in Elk County. It functioned as a combination depot that served both railway passengers and freight customers. The depot's passenger service ended in the mid-1950s, and its freight business ended in 1971. The Prairie and Craftsman-style station is a one-story brick and stucco building trimmed with decorative wood corbels and has a tile roof. It was designed by ATSF architect E. A. Harrison and chief engineer C.F.W. Felt - both of Chicago. Harrison designed many impressive buildings while working for the railroad, several of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The only other Kansas depot designed by Harrison that is listed in the National Register is in Newton. The Eureka ATSF depot was nominated for its local significance in the areas of transportation and architecture.

Eureka Downtown Historic District

Picture of property Generally 100-200 blocks N Main, S Main, to Elm, Oak, 3rd and 4th St
Eureka (Greenwood County)
Listed in National Register Sep 30, 2019

Architect: Not listed
Area of Significance: business
Architectural Style(s): Late 19th and 20th Century Revivals

The district reflects the development of Eureka from the 1870s through the modern development that emerged in the period that followed WWII and extended into the mid-1960s. The period of significance spans from 1877 – 1966 and the resources found throughout the district represent the growth and development of the City of Eureka during that time. The initial era of growth is conveyed by the first permanent masonry structures that lined Main Street prior to the turn of the century. Downtown Eureka’s role as a center of government for the city and county is an important part of its past and its future with Memorial Hall (1924), the U.S. Post Office (1937), and the Greenwood County Courthouse (1957) holding prominent physical and economic positions. The community’s successful efforts to save and restore the Greenwood Hotel have shifted now to the downtown historic district - a testament to Eureka residents’ civic pride and determination.
