Beaumont Hotel

Picture of property 11651 SE Main Street
Beaumont (Butler County)
Listed in National Register Feb 3, 2012

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: hotel

The Beaumont Hotel was originally built in 1879 as a railroad hotel, but was significantly remodeled in 1953 to serve as fly-in guests. The building took on its current form through the vision of local rancher James Clinton Squier. By the time Squier purchased the hotel and began remodeling it, his business associates were already using the adjacent pasture as a grass airstrip. Among the character-defining features from the mid-century remodel are viewing decks that were constructed to provide views to the surrounding Flint Hills landscape and the nearby grass airstrip. Soon, the hotel and its restaurant were attracting ranchers, hobby pilots, and day-trippers from nearby Wichita. In 1962, Squier removed the fence between the hotel and airstrip, thus beginning the tradition of pilots taxiing from the airstrip and parking their planes in front of the hotel. The building continues to serve as a hotel and restaurant. It was nominated for its local transportation and agriculture history.

Beaumont (Butler County)
Listed in State Register May 14, 2011

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: commerce
Architectural Style(s): Commercial Style

The Beaumont State Bank building was built in 1915 during a period of local prosperity and reflects the community’s second period of growth, fueled by its role as a railroad junction and oil town. Although Beaumont never met the expectations of 1880s boosters, it began to show signs of permanency in the early 20th century. Beaumont School graduated its first class in 1903. In 1905, William H. Squier opened a hardware store and a lumber yard on Main Street. The Beaumont State Bank was chartered with $10,000 in capital on June 12, 1911, and by 1915 had moved from a “frame store building across Main Street” to a modern brick building. This was the town’s only lending institution, and it thrived during the 1910s and 1920s as the regional oil industry prospered. It did not survive the Great Depression and closed in 1934. The building has remained in private ownership since the bank closure. It was nominated for its local commercial history.

Architectural Style(s): Other

The Beaumont St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad Retention Pond is located just south of Beaumont, an unincorporated village in Butler County. The property is historically associated with the nearby Beaumont St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad Water Tank, which was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. The St. Louis and San Francisco, colloquially known as the "Frisco," was founded in 1866 as the "Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Company." The Frisco first entered Kansas in 1879, and in 1884 began construction of a new line from Beaumont to Arkansas City, which was eventually extended south from Arkansas City to Enid, Oklahoma in 1907. Beaumont became an important division point along the line, and developed a stock yards, depot, section house, and roundhouse. Most importantly, Beaumont became the place where all passing steam trains took on their water and fuel. The retention pond held the water supply that was piped to the water tank alongside the tracks where steam engines were re-supplied. In the era of steam-powered locomotives, watering stations like this one were essential to railroad transportation. The retention pond is nominated for its local significance in the area of transportation.
