Picture of property 325 Commercial St
Atchison (Atchison County)
Listed in National Register Apr 13, 2020

Architect: Shattuck & Hussey; J.B. Betts (contractor)
Area of Significance: sports facility
Architectural Style(s): Tudor Revival

The period of significance is 1913-1969. The Atchison YMCA is locally significant for the National Register under Criterion A in the area of SOCIAL HISTORY. The nominated building is the physical embodiment of the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) organization’s mission to promote the improvement of society through community gatherings, lectures, and physical activity. While Atchison boasted the first unofficial YMCA organized in Kansas, it had to wait forty years before the group built a facility specially designed to house the functions specific to the YMCA. In 1911, the Atchison YMCA organization proposed constructing its building and announced a fund drive to finance the project. Chicago architects Shattuck & Hussey, the architects who designed hundreds of YMCA facilities across the world, designed the three-story Tudor Revival building. When the doors opened in 1913, the Atchison YMCA had a gymnasium, a swimming pool, rooms for community and organizational gatherings, and thirty-four residential rooms. The Atchison YMCA remained a strong presence in the community throughout its history, periodically adapting and renovating as the focus of the organization shifted. By the mid-twentieth century, the use of the residential rooms waned as the Atchison YMCA program shifted to provide athletic facilities, lessons, and teams for boys and girls of the community, as well as what was considered a wholesome gathering place for teenagers. The use of the dormitory rooms declined in use substantially during the mid-twentieth century. In later years, the YMCA program expanded to include childcare facilities and additional athletic opportunities. The Atchison YMCA has continuously served the community needs of the citizens of Atchison. The period of significance begins in 1913 with the construction of the Atchison YMCA and ends in 1969, the fifty-year end date for periods of significance where activities begun historically continue to have importance but no more specific date can be determined. The nominated building functioned as the city’s only YMCA facility until it closed in 2017. The Atchison YMCA organization continued to adapt its program and modify the building to meet the changing needs of the community.
