Ball, Charles M., House

Picture of property 702 Spruce Street
Coffeyville (Montgomery County)
Listed in National Register 2011-02-07

Architect: Undetermined
Category: single dwelling

Built between 1906 and 1908, the Ball House at 702 Spruce Street in Coffeyville combines the irregular Queen Anne house form with Classical Revival stylistic features and captures an important transitional period in architecture when the two styles were commonly blended. Its asymmetrical massing and variety of shapes and textures distinguish this three-story house. Charles Ball, who gained local notoriety for his banking, business, and real estate dealings during the early twentieth century, owned the house until his death in 1922. In addition to his many professional and community-related endeavors, Ball is perhaps most well known for his involvement in the Dalton Gang’s hold-up of Condon Bank on October 5, 1892. As the gang entered the bank that morning, they encountered cashier Charles Ball, who concocted a story about the safe being on a time lock. Four of the five robbers were eventually fatally wounded by the ensuing gunfire outside the bank. Although his link with the Dalton Gang robbery is interesting, it significantly pre-dates Ball’s association with the residence at 702 Spruce Street. Therefore, the house was nominated only for its local architectural significance.

Located north of Independence in Montgomery County, the Brown Barn is part of the James B. Brown farmstead that dates to 1880. The 2 ½-story sandstone and wood barn was built in 1885 and is nestled into a bluff out of which the stone for the barn was quarried. The barn is an example of the bank barn property type, which is characterized by its on-grade access to two levels, either through the use of a natural or soil bank or by a constructed ramp. It is nominated for its architectural and agricultural history.

Cedar Manor Farm

Picture of property 2326 CR 6400
Lafontaine vicinity (Montgomery County)
Listed in National Register 2014-01-08

Architect: Unknown
Category: Agricultural District
Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

The Cedar Manor Farm traces its roots back to Lafayette and Martha Pound, who settled the property in the early 1870s. The Pounds purchased this land from the United States government, which was selling tracts of the former Osage Trust Lands in southeast Kansas during this period. State and federal census records suggest Pound established a productive, much diversified farm by 1880, but the recurring cycles of financial depression and drought may have pushed the family to leave in 1893. The property changed hands several times and sat vacant many years until Clarence (Doc) and Bernice Raymond purchased it in 1929 and developed it into a dairy farm - known as Cedar Manor Farm - with an award winning registered Guernsey herd. Only a portion of the original Pound residence remains from the earliest occupation, and the majority of the farmstead was developed during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, reflecting the peak years of the dairy operation. Raymond enjoyed competition as he noted in an interview with the Coffeyville Journal: "If I couldn't show at fairs and livestock shows I would sell the herd. This dairying is work and the shows and fairs are the fun of the game." He retired from the dairy business in 1969 and sold the herd. The farm remains in the Raymond family. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the area of agriculture.
