Landmark Water Tower

Picture of property Sunset Ave. & Leavenworth St.
Manhattan (Riley County)
Listed in National Register 2017-10-04

Architect: Black & Veatch
Category: water works

Although the city of Manhattan had a waterworks facility by the spring of 1888, the town’s first water tower was not in use until 1922. Built between 1921 and 1922, the Landmark Water Tower provided water service to the then-westward edge of town. The standpipe also helped equalize water pressure to the rest of the city, whose residents had become increasingly aware of the citywide problem. Marked by its unique style, the standpipe features an external winding staircase, a viewing deck that offers a panoramic view of the town and Flint Hills region, and a tall conical spire. Designed by Kansas City, Missouri-based Black & Veatch, the all-steel tower was manufactured by the Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Company.

Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

The Persons Farm is nestled in the Flint Hills of the Kansas River valley in southeast Riley County. Lifelong farmer Enoch Persons obtained the property in the late 1850s. He and his family farmed and improved the land for the next five generations. The property includes a grouping of related farm buildings that illustrates the evolution of the farmstead over nearly a half-century. The features include a gable-roof barn made of native limestone and board-and-batten siding that was likely built in the 1860s, a wood-frame granary, with multiple interior grain bins, a corral partially enclosed with six-foot tall limestone walls that date to 1939, and a 1919 clay tile silo with a concrete foundation. The property is nominated for its agricultural and architectural history.

Pioneer Log Cabin

Manhattan (Riley County)
Listed in National Register 2020-02-03

Architect: Riley County Settlers
Category: museum

The Riley County Historical Society, founded in 1914, completed this cabin two years later. Designed to illustrate living conditions of early Riley County settlers, the Pioneer Log Cabin is a representation of early horizontal log construction techniques featuring hand-hewn logs and joints that were crafted and assembled onsite. Built 60 years after Manhattan’s founding, the Historical Society’s goal with this first museum was to preserve a record of the pioneer way of life. Upon its founding, the Society immediately began capturing sketches of pioneer life from any resident of the county who cared to share and have their memories preserved. Hundreds responded with letters and items. The cabin was built as a home for the archives exhibiting historic memorabilia from the earliest days of the county’s establishment and continues to serve that function today. The cabin served as home to the Historical Society and as their only museum until 1957 when they opened a larger museum. National Register listing is pending.
