El Dorado (Butler County)
Listed in National Register 2015-01-07

Architect: Unknown
Category: single dwelling

Pipeline engineer Ray L. Smith commissioned the construction of this Colonial Revival-style residence in 1936. The P. T. Cortelyou Construction Company of Wichita built the residence, which is speculated to have been designed by Topeka-based architect Thomas W. Williamson who was overseeing the construction of El Dorado's high school and junior college that was completed in 1937. Smith's residence is located in the Cooper Park Addition to El Dorado, which was platted in 1877 but not fully developed until the 1920s and 1930s. The residence is an excellent local example of the side-gable subtype of the Colonial Revival style. Its characteristic features include a pedimented front door, many plain and fluted pilasters, multi-light sash windows, end chimneys, cornice returns, and working shutters. It is nominated for its local significance in the area of architecture.

Viets Block

Picture of property 427, 429, & 431 State Street
Augusta (Butler County)
Listed in National Register 2012-04-16

Architect: Switzer, J.
Category: department store; specialty store; multiple dwelling

The Viets Block is a two-story building located on the southwest corner of the intersection of State Street and 5th Street in downtown Augusta. This key corner building, which occupies three city lots, developed over many years in the early 20th century and today retains its Commercial-style appearance, its traditional storefronts and recessed entrances, tile entry, and glass transoms. Mercantile proprietor Charles A. Viets developed the property in about 1900 and later contributed to major renovations in 1916 and 1923, which gave the building its current appearance. The building's first floor housed two regionally important department stores - the Viets clothing and dry goods store during the early 1900s and later Calvert's department store. The second floor served as meeting space for the local Elks lodge for about twenty years. It was nominated for its local commercial history and its Commercial-style architecture.

Picture of property
El Dorado (Butler County)
Listed in National Register 2019-09-30

Architect: N/A
Category: transportation

The Cherokee Trail Walnut River Crossing preserves a rare intact portion of a historic emigrant route used by those moving toward Oregon and California. Though the Cherokee Trail followed the Santa Fe Trail from a point near present-day Ellsworth to Bents Old Fort, it is considered to be a branch of the Oregon/California Trail, joining that route at Fort Bridger in Wyoming. The nominated property also includes the original location of the Conner Cabin, the first structure built within what would become the City of El Dorado. The Cherokee Trail, the Walnut River Crossing is locally significant under Criterion A for its association with transportation as a major route, and with exploration/settlement of the expanding western lands and the region. The property is also significant under Criteria D for its information potential in association with the original location of the Conner Cabin and the trail crossing.

Whitewater Falls Stock Farm

Picture of property 433 Falls Road
Towanda (Butler County)
Listed in National Register 2014-10-08

Architect: Charles, Ulysses Grant
Category: agricultural outbuilding
Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

The Whitewater Falls Stock Farm near Towanda is home to one of the state's most iconic barns. J.W. Robison purchased this prime land along the Whitewater River in Butler County and established his stock farm in 1884. In 1895, his son J.C. joined the business, which specialized in raising a breed of draft horse known as the Percheron. Their registered stock won awards at the World’s Fair, the American Royal, and many state fairs. The farm also grew into a major cattle feeding operation in the early 20th century. Not long after J.C.’s death, the business and farm were sold in 1945. At the time of nomination, the property consists of the iconic 1909 horse barn designed by Wichita architect Ulysses Grant Charles, an impressive Craftsman-style residence designed by El Dorado architect Carl Muck, and a few outbuildings. The property was nominated as part of the "Historic Agriculture-Related Resources of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its agriculture history and architectural significance.
