Wilke, Fritz, House

Picture of property 105 N Front Street
Inman (McPherson County)
Listed in State Register May 14, 2011

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

Built circa 1881, the Fritz Wilke House is an excellent example of the National Folk tradition, which dominated residential architecture in the late 19th century post-railroad era. National Folk houses are typically modest and sometimes have stylistic detailing common to the period, but they are best classified by their mass-produced materials and simplistic form and plan. The Wilke family emigrated from Germany to Kansas and purchased land in McPherson County in 1881. The Wilke property was representative of a typical 160-acre German immigrant farmstead in Kansas during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Wilke’s semi-subsistence farm appears to have remained small and diversified in relation to the growing farming and ranching operations of the period with no particular specialization in swine, poultry, dairy, beef cattle, or grain production. The property remained in the Wilke family until the 1970s. The farmstead is no longer extant and was taken for the expansion of Highway 61, but the house has been saved and relocated to the nearby community of Inman. The house was nominated for its architecture.
