Picture of property 5532 Knox Ave.
Merriam (Johnson County)
Listed in National Register Mar 27, 2017

Architect: Unknown
Area of Significance: single dwelling
Architectural Style(s): Prairie School

The Walker House was one of two speculative Shirtwaist-style houses constructed around 1910 in Merriam’s 40-acre R.W. Hocker Subdivision. Richard Weaver (R.W.) Hocker was a prominent local banker and developer in the Kansas City area. He platted his eight five-acre lot subdivision concurrently with his development of the Hocker Interurban Line. Begun in 1904 this trolley line eventually connected downtown Kansas City, Missouri, with Merriam and points west; it was discontinued in 1927. The house’s parcel now only includes a portion of Lot K due to later residential development. The Walker House is significant for its association with early suburban development associated with the Kansas City regional streetcar lines and for its architecture as a suburban example of the Shirtwaist style.

Architect: Not listed
Area of Significance: church school
Architectural Style(s): Greek Revival

Shawnee Mission was one of many established as a manual training school attended by boys and girls from Shawnee, Delaware, and other Indian nations from 1839 to 1862. At the height of its activity, Shawnee Mission was an establishment of 2,000 acres with 16 buildings, including three large brick structures, which still stand. The school was abandoned in 1864 and for the next sixty years the building served variously as Union Army barracks, a dance hall, dairy bottling plant, apartments, and a boarding house. In 1927, the state bought the three remaining buildings and began restoration work and landscaping on the 12-acre grounds. The property was nominated to the National Register in 1968.

Stilwell Grade School

Picture of property 6415 W 199th Street
Stilwell (Johnson County)
Listed in State Register Nov 19, 2011

Architect: Undetermined
Area of Significance: school
Architectural Style(s): Neoclassical

The Stilwell Grade School was built in 1910 following a fire that destroyed the Aubry Rural School. The Aubry and Stilwell areas were growing rapidly in the early twentieth century and area school districts struggled to keep up with the growth. Prior to the destructive fire, Aubry Rural School received an addition to accommodate more students. The new Stilwell school was much bigger than its predecessors and served grades one through 12 until a new high school was constructed across the street in 1920. Stilwell Grade School was built by L. A. Medaris and is an example of a town graded school, which was designed for graded instruction. Graded schools emerged in towns across Kansas after 1900, and they were often built as one- and two-story brick buildings exhibiting common architectural styles of the period. This type of school building was one of the most flexible in terms of student population and could serve grades one through six or eight, while some even served all grades. The Neoclassical style is subtly exhibited on the Stilwell Grade School and is found primarily in the decorative quoining at the corners, raised brick ornamentation, and symmetrical elevations. It is nominated for its architecture and educational history.

Sunflower Village Historic District

Picture of property 36000 103rd Street
DeSoto (Johnson County)
Listed in National Register Nov 18, 2014

Architect: Marshall & Brown
Area of Significance: residential district
Architectural Style(s): Other

Sunflower Village is a World War II-era housing development erected by the U.S. government to address a critical housing shortage near DeSoto due to the influx of workers to the Sunflower Ordinance Works facility. This self-contained residential community complete with commercial, educational, social, and recreational facilities was a sort of federal company town. Designed by landscape architects Hare and Hare, the community is organized around a series of roads that form a hierarchy of circulation paths, separating pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the village. The layout combines curvilinear roads with a traditional grid creating multiple neighborhood clusters. The dwelling units themselves were designed by the Kansas City-based architecture firm Marshall and Brown and are distinguished by their uniformity, simplicity, and utilitarian design. The significant factors reflected by the individual buildings is the speed in which they were constructed, the influence of war-time materials rationing on their design and construction, and that the project was designed to be temporary. At the time of nomination, 157 of the 175 of the original residential buildings remain. It was nominated for its local significance in the areas of community planning and development, military, and government.
