Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of Kansas

Constructed in 1937 through the federal Public Works Administration, the Ashland Grade School is a two-story, red brick building with flat roof, parapet, and stone detailing. Designed by Wichita architect Glen H. Thomas, the Classical Revival-style school reflects the evolution of traditional Progressive Era schools with its main formal entrance and provisional additions of auditorium, music room, and library. The structure is also similar to the Louisa May Alcott Grade School in Wichita, which Thomas designed in 1926. Nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas" multiple property listing, it is important for its architecture and its association with the development of Ashland.
