Haysville (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2019-09-30

Architect: Hickman, John M.
Category: specialty store
Thematic Nomination: Roadside Kansas

Vickers Petroleum, founded by Jack A. Vickers, Sr. in 1918, steadily rose in prosperity from its inception until its sale to Swift & Company in the late 1960s. The company became known for its innovation not only in oil technology but also in building and construction. By 1954, Vickers’s son Jack A. Vickers, Jr. was the president of the company and set out to build transformative and modern service stations after amassing a large fortune for the company. When an EF4 tornado struck the city of Haysville in 1999, little remained in the city other than the first Vickers batwing service station. The community’s efforts to preserve the last remaining bit of their town after the tornado displayed the city’s desire to rebuild their town and to preserve its history to the largest extent possible. The Vickers Petroleum Service Station is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under the Roadside Kansas Multiple Property Document for Criterion A for COMMERCE, as a representation of the long history of the Vickers Petroleum company. Additionally, it is eligible for Criterion C in the area of architecture as a unique and first-of-its-kind design and construction.

Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2014-06-27

Architect: Mourning, Oliver J.
Category: domestic
Thematic Nomination: Residential Resources of Wichita, Sedgwick County, KS, 1870-1957

The Victor Court Apartments, built in 1935, are located approximately one mile east of the downtown Wichita along North Hydraulic Avenue. The property originally included 12 apartments in three buildings - a two-story central building and two one-story buildings extended at an angle from either corner. The buildings reflect the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture, which was popular throughout the United States in the early and mid-20th century. Wichita oilman John Ellsworth Thorp developed the property in 1935, hiring Oliver J. Mourning to design and erect the buildings, which are constructed of Dunbrick, an unpainted brick masonry coated with a highly water-resistant finish. The property was nominated as part of the "Residential Resources of Wichita, Sedgwick County, Kansas" multiple property nomination for its local significance in the areas of community planning and development and architecture.

Western Union Building

Picture of property 154 N Topeka Ave
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2018-09-14

Architect: McAdams, Arthur Frederick; Collins, R.T. (builder)
Category: commerce

Erected in 1924 the Western Union Building, also known as the Collins Building, is significant for its association with the Western Union Telegraph Company during the early to mid-twentieth century when the company dominated wire communications in the United States. News of the Collins Building’s opening in the Wichita Eagle stated that the building would serve as the relay center for message traffic for most of Kansas and northern Oklahoma. Western Union and Wichita were inextricably linked for over 100 years, 60 of which were associated with this building. In that time local newspapers document at least three major changes in methods of telegraphy operation, each time due to further mechanization, likely leading to downsizing personnel and space requirements. Western Union closed its Wichita office in the nominated building in 1984 and sent its last telegram in 2006. .

Westside IOOF Lodge

Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register 2013-05-01

Architect: unknown
Category: financial institution; meeting hall

The Westside IOOF Lodge is located in Wichita's Delano district. Now a shopping and entertainment district, Delano was first established in the 1870s and began a transformation into a suburban commercial district as the city expanded west of the Arkansas River (known as the "West Side") in the 1880s. Delano was fully developed in the 1910s as the city's growing population filled bungalows in the nearby Riverside Addition. The Westside International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) organized in 1888 and built this two-story building at the corner of West Douglas Avenue and Walnut Street in 1911. The Odd Fellows used the second-floor space for their meetings until 1983, while various businesses occupied the first floor, including the Farmers State Bank from 1919 to 1933, Ponca Tent and Awning Company, Grotto Recreation, and Kellogg-Buck Furniture. The building was nominated for its local significance in the area of social history for its association with the IOOF.
