Thematic Nomination: Historic Agriculture Related Resources of Kansas

Woodland Place Stock Farm, later known as Woodland Ranch, is nominated as part of the "Historic Agricultural-related Resources of Kansas" MPS under Criteria A and C for its association with early agricultural history of Republic County and for the barns' example of the Midwest Prairie style. The period of significance begins in 1878 when George Johnson had acquired all the land that comprised the 880-acre Woodland Place Stock Farm. Beginning in circa 1906, Joseph Elliott and WS Lower had formed a partnership that ran Woodland Ranch. The land and extant resources supported almost 50 years of successful agribusiness focused on cattle-raising. Joseph Elliott purchased the property in 1925, indicating that the partnership between him and Lower was dissolved.
