Bartlett Arboretum

Picture of property SW Cornerof HWY 55 and Line Street
Belle Plaine (Sumner County)
Listed in National Register Apr 19, 2010

Architect: Bartlett, Dr. Walter; Bartlett, Glenn & Margaret
Area of Significance: agricultural field; single dwelling; park; outdoor recreation
Architectural Style(s): Other

The 15-acre Bartlett Arboretum is located at the edge of the small agricultural community of Belle Plaine in Sumner County. Euphrates Creek runs through the property making a circuitous route to the Ninnescah River two miles downstream. What began as an undeveloped, treeless parcel of land alongside the railroad tracks on the edge of town was transformed first into a recreational landscape with athletic fields, picnic areas, and a waterfowl preserve with a variety of plant and tree species, and later, an arboretum complete with a designed formal garden, nursery, and hundreds of species of plants. There were two primary phases of development. The first transformation occurred in 1910 with the construction of athletic fields, damming of the creek, planting of trees, and introduction of waterfowl and fish. The second major phase of development began in the mid-1920s with the creation of the formal garden and floral plantings and was intended to evolve and renew with each planting season. Other elements and structures have been introduced to the landscape since the 1920s, including a nursery to develop and experiment with a variety of plant species, but in a manner that enhances its intended design. It was nominated for its landscape architecture.

Barton, Welborn 'Doc', House

Picture of property 202 S Edwards Street
Ingalls (Gray County)
Listed in National Register Jan 7, 2010

Architect: unknown
Area of Significance: vacant/not in use; secondary structure; single dwelling; storage
Architectural Style(s): Late Victorian

Built in about 1880, the Barton House is a unique combination of common late nineteenth century house forms and styles. The National Folk form is expressed in the house's symmetry and in the multiple exterior doors, while the Victorian form is expressed in the chamfered exterior walls. The Victorian style is expressed in the interior and exterior wood trim and the original front porch details. One of the most unique features of the Barton House is the presence of eight exterior doorways within the original configuration - a five-room, 850 square-foot plan. Each room has at least one door to the outside. It was common for some types of Folk buildings to feature two front doors, including the double-pen, the dogtrot, and the I-house, although the reasons for the multiple doors varies with the region and type of house. In addition to its unique architecture, the house was home to early western Kansas cattleman Welborn 'Doc' Barton, who built the home in Cimarron and moved to its current location in Ingalls in 1896. Barton lived in the house until his death in 1946. It was nominated for its association with Barton and as a unique example of Folk Victorian architecture.

Battin Apartments Historic District

Picture of property 1700 S Elpyco
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register Jul 3, 2012

Architect: Metz, George
Area of Significance: multiple dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Colonial Revival; Modern Movement; Other

The Battin Apartments Historic District includes 26 multi-family apartment buildings developed in 1949 by Ray Garvey and his son Willard of Builders, Incorporated. The firm specialized in constructing affordable housing in Wichita during the booming post-World War II era. They closely followed the requirements mandated by the Federal Housing Administration that involved appropriate location, access to commercial services, access to bus and automobile routes, local zoning and siting requirements, and street design. The firm hired architect George Metz, who used a standard apartment plan for all the apartment buildings within the Battin complex. The buildings are one-and-a-half stories with modest Ranch and Colonial Revival characteristics. A landscaped setting provides continuity for the buildings that are interconnected by sidewalks and a central thoroughfare that allows vehicular access to all buildings. The result is a cohesive designed residential development representative of the post-war period in Wichita. The district is nominated for its local significance in the areas of community planning and development, government, and architecture.

Battle of Punished Woman's Fork

Picture of property Address Restricted
Scott City (Scott County)
Listed in National Register Oct 10, 2007

Architect: N/A
Area of Significance: camp; battle site

The Battle of Punished Woman's Fork (14SC306) is a site that was the location of a confrontation between the U.S. Army and a group of 284 Northern Cheyenne on September 27, 1878. The Northern Cheyenne, under the joint leadership of chiefs Dull Knife and Little Wolf, had left the Darlington Agency in Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) earlier in September and were attempting to return to their homes in Montana. A detachment of U.S. Army soldiers under the command of Colonel William H. Lewis, who had orders to capture and return them to Oklahoma, was in pursuit. The Cheyenne stopped in a narrow tributary of Ladder Creek, known today as Battle Canyon, where they prepared an ambush for the approaching soldiers. After a protracted gun battle during which both sides suffered casualties, the Cheyenne were able to slip away and continue their flight to the north. The soldiers continued their pursuit until most Cheyenne were killed or captured. The clash that took place at the Scott County site between the Cheyenne and the U. S. Army, and their ultimate escape to continue their journey north toward Montana was a pivotal event during the larger Northern Cheyenne Exodus of 1878-1879. This nationally significant site was nominated for its association with this event and the Plains Indian Wars.

Beal House

Picture of property 1624 Indiana St.
Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register Dec 29, 2015

Architect: George Malcolm Beal
Area of Significance: domestic; single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Modern Movement
Thematic Nomination: Historic Resources of Lawrence (2014 post-WWII resources)

The 1950 Beal House is an outstanding local example of Usonian organic architecture. KU Architecture professor George Malcolm Beal expanded upon Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian design principles by calculating site-specific sun angles using an original heliodon instrument he designed and built for early sustainable design classes at KU. As a result of these calculations, the roof overhangs the nearly all-glass south elevation to take full advantage of solar gain in winter and shade in summer. The house's period of significance spans from 1950 to 1968, when George and Helen Beal moved. The house and site are nominated as part of the "Historic Resources of Lawrence" under Criterion B for its local association with George Beal, who designed and resided here while shaping the transition of the University of Kansas's architecture program from classical to modern and under Criterion C for its architecture and engineering. Though her association is outside the period of significance, State Representative Betty Jo Charlton resided here from 1971 to 2014; she was the first woman legislator from Lawrence, serving from 1979 until 1994.

Beamer Barn

Picture of property 2931 CR 18
Oakley vicinity (Gove County)
Listed in National Register Jul 8, 2010

Architect: Beamer, Ross; Gallion, Ross
Area of Significance: animal facility; storage
Architectural Style(s): Other
Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

With its rounded Gothic-arch roof, the Beamer Barn dominates this small farmstead that sits along Interstate 70 in the far northwest corner of Gove County. Arch-roof barns, which were designed to maximize hay storage, gained popularity in the late 1910s but are increasingly rare on the modern Kansas landscape. The first story of the Beamer Barn, which was constructed in 1924, features hard-fired ceramic blocks that rest upon a concrete foundation. The second story is wood framed, with horizontal weatherboards within the arched ends and a wood-shingle roof with a graceful Gothic arch. On the east-facing elevation there is a haymow at the roof peak and a large sliding hay door on the second story. Its rafters are constructed of bent round rafters that are four and five boards thick. Horizontal beams near the interior peak provide bracing, as do several spaced vertical beams. Today, the barn is vacant and no longer used as part of a working farm, however, it retains its historic interior features including the central aisle, stanchions, and upper story hayloft. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas" multiple property listing for its association with local agricultural history and for its architecture.
