Belleview School

Picture of property 1/8 mile E of Springdale Rd on 120th S Rd
Caldwell vicinity (Sumner County)
Listed in State Register Nov 19, 2011

Architect: Undetermined
Area of Significance: school
Architectural Style(s): Vernacular

Belleview School was constructed in 1894 as a one-room country schoolhouse that served rural students in Sumner County's district 68 until it closed in 1956. The district's first building was erected in 1878 on land in Caldwell Township, and it is not known why a new building was needed in 1894. The Chisholm Trail - a trade route linking the Arkansas River valley with the Indian Territory that was later used as a cattle-driving route - passed through the Caldwell area. As a result, this vicinity witnessed rapid population and commercial growth when the county was opened for white settlement in 1870. One-room schools popped up throughout the township during the 1870s and 1880s. After Belleview School closed in 1956, the building was used as a polling place until 1998. It sat vacant for nearly 15 years before the township sold it to the current owners who relocated it to their nearby farm in 2009. It is nominated for its association with local education.

At the time of its opening, the school's design reflected the latest trends in school planning with separate auditorium and gymnasium spaces and specialized classrooms for the manual training and domestic science departments.

Beni Israel Cemetery

Picture of property 1301 E 2100 Road
Eudora (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register Jan 2, 2013

Architect: N/A
Area of Significance: cemetery

Established in 1858, the Beni Israel Cemetery near Eudora is the only surviving property associated with the Jewish community in Eudora, which flourished briefly from 1857 to 1867 before moving to Lawrence. Jewish settlers were among the first Eudora residents. Of the 29 heads of families who arrived in Eudora in 1857, approximately seven were Jewish. Many of Eudora's early Jewish family names, such as Urbansky, Cohn, and Katzenstein, grace the headstones of the Beni Israel Cemetery. In 1868, the Jewish community in Lawrence organized as the Society of Beni Israel under the leadership of seven trustees and assumed responsibility of the cemetery. Burials continued at the cemetery until the late 1920s and then remained largely idle until it was reactivated in 1978. Over time, the cemetery came to represent the Jewish community in Lawrence and Douglas County and remains today as a reflection of their collective history and religious and ethnic identity during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was nominated for its local significance in the areas of early settlement social history.

Benson Culvert (County Bridge FAS-40)

Picture of property W of Gove; west of intersection of M Road and 28 Road
Gove (Gove County)
Listed in National Register Dec 3, 2013

Architect: Tyson, Frank D. (Gove County Engineer)
Area of Significance: road-related
Architectural Style(s): Vernacular
Thematic Nomination: Masonry Arch Bridges of Kansas

Benson Culvert is a double arch limestone bridge that was built in 1938 as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project. The bridge’s construction is typical of limestone structures built in this area during the early 20th century and is representative of the master stone builders and craftsmanship of construction workers trained by the WPA. In September 1937, County Engineer Frank Tyson announced an "extensive culvert campaign" and the use of WPA workers to quarry local rock and construct several similar bridges. The Benson Culvert - likely so called because it was near Charley Benson’s property - was opened to traffic in June 1938. It is located southwest of Gove on a rural county road near the intersection of M Road and 28 Road. It spans a tributary of Plum Creek and water flows beneath the bridge only during seasonal rains. It was nominated as part of the New Deal-era Resources of Kansas and Masonry Arch Bridges of Kansas multiple property nominations for its local significance in the areas of social history, government, and architecture.

Berger House

Picture of property 208 NE 12th St.
Abilene (Dickinson County)
Listed in National Register Jun 27, 2007

Architect: Not listed
Area of Significance: secondary structure; single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Modern Movement
Thematic Nomination: Lustron Houses of Kansas

The Berger House is nominated for its architectural significance as one of fewer than 100 extant Lustron houses in Kansas. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, architectural pundits heralded the prefabricated house - particularly the metal house - as the wave of the future. The most famous producer of the prefabricated metal home of the postwar era was the Lustron Corporation, which manufactured an all-steel house that it boasted could be sold for $7,000. The Berger House (c. 1949), is the Westchester Deluxe two-bedroom model with its "Maize Yellow" exterior and "Dove Gray' roof tiles, and its two bedrooms. There were eight Lustron dealers in Kansas - including Smith Implements in Abilene. The Berger House was the first of two Lustron houses to be built in Abilene.
