Picture of property 308 N Indiana St
Sylvan Grove (Lincoln County)
Listed in National Register Oct 2, 2015

Architect: C.A. Smith (Salina)
Area of Significance: church school
Architectural Style(s): Vernacular; Prairie School

The Evangelical Lutheran School is located on the east edge of Sylvan Grove, directly north of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church. The two-and-a-half-story building reflects the Prairie School style of architecture and is constructed of native limestone, a common material in this area during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The school is associated with the early German Lutheran immigrants who settled in this area, following the efforts of Christ Kruse, a railroad man from Chicago known for as a community builder and founder of Lutheran churches. The 1913 school, designed by Salina architect C.A. Smith, replaced an earlier building at the same location. The parochial school operated every year except one between 1913 and 1981. At the start of the 1918-1919 school year, Lincoln County's Council of Defense closed the Evangelical Lutheran School due to anti-German hysteria during World War I.

Sylvan Grove (Lincoln County)
Listed in State Register May 14, 2022

Architect: Frank Felcman
Area of Significance: domestic
Architectural Style(s): Late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movements

The Felcman Homestead is representative of limestone homes built in the late 19th century in rural north-central Kansas. The Felcman property is in the middle of Post Rock-Limestone-Country, a band of easily accessible Greenhorn limestone deposits in central Kansas about 200 miles long from southwest to northeast and ranging from less than 10 miles to nearly 60 miles wide. Early settlers, who had little access to timber, quarried stone for the construction of homes, barns, outbuildings, stores, schools, fence posts and even clothesline poles. The Felcman’s immigrated to America in 1883 from Bohemia, now known as the Czech Republic. They homesteaded this property and joined with other Czechs from Bohemia in settling the area around Wilson, Kansas, which is recognized as the Czech Capital of Kansas.
