The gabled hay hood features doors that slide down the exterior along the slope of the roof. They operate on a pulley system with two original concrete weights on the barn's interior that are stamped "1915". The interior reflects its original multiple uses of storing hay and housing livestock. The barn is nominated for its agricultural and architectural history.

Garfield Elementary School

Picture of property 300 NW 7th Street
Abilene (Dickinson County)
Listed in National Register Nov 4, 2009

Architect: Radotinsky, Arch, KC,Cayton Assoc Abilene
Area of Significance: school
Architectural Style(s): Modern Movement
Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of KansasNew Deal-era Resources of Kansas

Designed by Kansas City-based architect Joseph W. Radotinsky, Abilene's Garfield Elementary School was built in 1942 with the assistance of the federal Work Projects Administration. Radotinsky's designs of the 1930s and 1940s were notable, breaking from the Progressive Era tenets that had defined educational architecture for the first three decades of the 20th century. A review of school board minutes and local media coverage of the school's planning and construction clearly portrays an emphasis on modern accoutrements, an attention to functional aspects of the school's use, consideration of maintenance and performance of materials, and planning for future expansion. With its blond brick and concrete construction, horizontal lines and bands of windows, stepped bays, and simple form, it is an excellent example of Modern and Art Moderne architecture. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas" and the "New Deal-Era Resources of Kansas" multiple property nominations for its association with local educational history and its architecture.

Gorden, David R., House

Picture of property 400 N. Cedar Street
Abilene (Dickinson County)
Listed in National Register Jul 3, 2012

Architect: Keagy, Frank
Area of Significance: single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Gothic

Civil War veteran David R. Gorden arrived in Kansas in 1866 and found work with the Union Pacific Railroad as a telegraph operator. In 1869, he transferred to Abilene where he served as UP’s first station agent during the height of cattle-shipping activity. Gorden had many local business interests and also served as Abilene’s postmaster from 1889-1894. He hired architect Franklin Keagy of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania to design this residence, which was completed in 1877. The two-and-a-half-story house reflects the late Victorian-era Gothic Revival style, with its brick exterior, decorative gable trim, paired peak-head windows in the front gable, and round-arch double-door entrance. The gables are not as steeply pitched as classic examples of Gothic Revival residential architecture, and the house form mimics that of the Folk Victorian gable-front-and-wing. It is nominated for its local significance in the area of architecture.

Hazlett-Hurd House

Picture of property 820 NW Third Street
Abilene (Dickinson County)
Listed in State Register May 14, 2011

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: domestic
Architectural Style(s): Queen Anne

The Hazlett-Hurd House, built in 1887 and redesigned in the 1920s, is located along a primary residential thoroughfare west of downtown Abilene. The house is named for two locally prominent men who lived in the home at different periods – Dr. Edward Hazlett and Arthur Hurd. Hazlett, who operated a busy medical practice and opened Abilene’s first hospital, built the house in 1887. His son Swede was a high school classmate and lifelong friend of Dwight Eisenhower’s, who later credited Swede with convincing him to apply for an appointment to the Naval Academy, and when that did not materialize, to West Point. Local attorney and Abilene mayor Arthur Hurd purchased the house in 1916, and by the mid-1920s had significantly expanded the house to provide more parlor and bedroom space. After the renovation, the front porch featured simple porch columns and an adjacent pergola reflecting the more subdued Colonial Revival style. Importantly, though, it retained many Queen Anne stylistic features, too, including decorative wood shingles within the gables, the irregular footprint and roofline, interior woodwork, and general room arrangement. As a result, the house reflects two periods of development – the late 1880s and the mid-1920s – and the tastes of both the Hazletts and the Hurds. Today, the residence functions as a bed-and-breakfast. It was nominated for its social history and architecture.
