Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of Kansas

The Protection High School and Grade School complex began in 1930 with construction of the high school. Designed by Hutchinson architects Routledge and Hertz, it is a two-story, red brick Collegiate Gothic-style building. In 1950, Wichita architects Hibbs and Robinson designed and constructed the one-story grade school. Rectangular in shape, the grade school exemplifies mid-twentieth century architecture with its simplistic form and mutli-pane steel windows. Both buildings are good representations of each firm's work and reflect the period in which they were built. The complex was nominated as part of the "Historic Public Schools of Kansas Multiple Property Submission" for its association with local education and for their architecture.
