Like many Kansas farm communities, Collyer thrived during the first decades of the twentieth century. Developments in agricultural technology, including the adoption of gasoline-powered tractors, and recordhigh crop prices during World War I left Kansas farmers with unprecedented sums of disposable income. Small-town businesses scrambled to accommodate the new consumer class. Whereas Collyer's residents at this time included laborers and agents working for the Union Pacific Railroad, most were carpenters, horse traders, merchants, butchers, and barbers who provided goods and services to the surrounding farm and ranch community. In 1917, Collyer was incorporated - for the first time - as a third-class city. It was during the post-World War I years that Collyer took on much of its present character. The district includes twelve historic buildings and structures all constructed between 1926 and 1935. Most buildings have been vacant for many years. The district was nominated for its association with the development of the community.
