Built in 1909, the three-story, symmetrical masonry building features classrooms arranged around a central stair tower and specialized rooms for manual training and assembly. Elements of the Classical Revival style include engaged pilasters, multi-light windows, a rusticated stone base, and classical cornice elements. Rose's successor, architect Joseph Radotinsky, designed a 1939 addition to the east end of the building, which blends well with the massing and materials of the original building. The building functioned as an elementary school through 1939 when it was converted to use by the Kansas City Junior College, which occupied the building until 1968. It is nominated for its local significance in the areas of architecture and education.

Kansas City (Wyandotte County)
Listed in National Register 2012-01-20

Architect: Rose and Peterson
Category: education related
Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of Kansas

The Kansas City, Kansas High School Gymnasium and Laboratory building was built in 1923 as an education-related structure intended to support educational activities. The related high school sat across the street, but a fire destroyed the school in 1934. A tunnel beneath 9th Street had connected the two buildings. The three-story gym and lab building featured specialized classrooms, such as chemistry and physics laboratories and a home economics department, and indoor athletic facilities that included a spacious two-story gymnasium, swimming pool, and locker rooms with showers. After the fire, a Junior College program moved into the gym and lab building and would later expand into the nearby Horace Mann Elementary School and remained there until 1968. The high school left the building for good when the new Wyandotte High School opened in 1937. School district architects William W. Rose and David B. Peterson designed the gym and lab building in the Renaissance Revival style. It is nominated for its local significance in the area of education.

Kansas City YMCA

Picture of property 900 N 8th St
Kansas City (Wyandotte County)
Listed in National Register 2019-07-12

Architect: Rose & Peterson; Peterson, Almon, & Rose
Category: sports facility

The Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) officially came to Kansas in 1879. Throughout the 1880s, cities across the state established additional local associations, most often meeting in rented rooms within downtown commercial buildings. Between 1900 and World War I, a nationwide building boom created over two hundred dedicated YMCA buildings with increasingly standardized designs of Classically-styled brick buildings on the edges of commercial centers. YMCA construction in Kansas followed this national trend, with the greatest number of new Kansas YMCA buildings constructed during these years. Although Kansas City’s YMCA building was planned and designed between 1911 and 1913, only the first two stories were completed by the end of 1913 due to a lack of funds. The unfinished building sat vacant at the west edge of downtown Kansas City until a push in the late 1920s that finally opened the YMCA in November 1927. Although completed on the cusp of the Great Depression, Kansas City, Kansas’ Eighth Street YMCA Building is an excellent example of the pre-World War I YMCA building found in cities across the United States; it was one of only a few extant examples in Kansas, as most across the state have been demolished. Kansas City’s YMCA Building is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C for its local significance in the area of Architecture with its period of significance defined by the years of its construction, 1912-1913 and 1927.
