The Lueck Department Store is historically significant for its association with the commercial development of Corning, a railroad settlement in Nemaha County, and the commerce of the surrounding rural community in Illinois Township. The building is locally significant as one of the last original commercial buildings. Generally, the economy of Corning and its surrounding trade area was based on small scale diversified farming and stock-raising. The Lueck Department Store, operated by George Lueck from 1908 to 1949, is an example of a successful business that served as the community center of a thriving rural community. As storekeeper and community leader, George Lueck contributed to the development of Nemaha County for several decades in the first half of the twentieth century.

Picture of property 1729 KS-9 Hwy.
Goff (Nemaha County)
Listed in State Register 2018-02-10

Architect: Unknown
Category: civic

During its first 20 years the Powell Building was home to three mercantile/general stores but by 1916 it housed the city’s first opera house and theater. By 1919 the theater, called the “Electric Theater,” offered entertainment to the citizens as well as acting as a center for community events such as the Armistice Day celebration at the end of WWI. The building served the town’s civic organizations including the Odd Fellows Lodge, the American Legion Post and the Lions Club and also functioned the city’s community hall for 20 years (1940-1960). While multi-purpose use of buildings is not uncommon in small towns, the Powell Building is significant in its broad utility for the town, likely touching the lives of every citizen for several generations and as one of the only relatively intact historic commercial buildings remaining in the town of Goff.
