Arvonia School

Picture of property 0000 S. 9th St.
Lebo (Osage County)
Listed in National Register Jul 3, 2012

Architect: Haskell, John
Area of Significance: school
Architectural Style(s): Other
Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of Kansas

The Arvonia School served as the only school for the Welsh community of Arvonia from the time of its construction in 1872 until the school closed due to consolidation in 1949. Arvonia was platted in the late 1860s on land purchased for speculation by John Mather Jones, owner of a Welsh-language newspaper in Utica, New York and his associate James A. Whitaker of Chicago. To entice Welsh colonists to buy land in Kansas, Jones published a pamphlet entitled "Arvonia: That Is, The Welsh Settlement in Osage County." Although the town did not meet the expectations of early spectators, many Welsh families remained for generations. The school was designed by pioneer Kansas architect John G. Haskell, and is one of the earliest-known architect-designed schools in Kansas. However, because the stone building was heavily modified in about 1900 with the removal of the second story, it is not being nominated for its architecture but rather for its local significance in the areas of education and Welsh ethnic heritage.

Architect: Beitz, Henry (builder)
Area of Significance: civic; meeting hall
Architectural Style(s): Vernacular

The Arvonia Township Hall, constructed in 1916, is significant for its role in community life in the rural community of Arvonia. For 100 years, the building has housed significant community events, including social and political gatherings of local farmers, war-relief efforts, soil conservation meetings, and celebrations of the community’s Welsh heritage such as St. David’s Day celebrations. Both the Great Depression and World War II changed the Arvonia community and, by extension, the township hall. The last celebration of St. David’s Day occurred in 1940.

Ash-Grove Historic District on East Douglas Avenue

Picture of property 2100-2300 E Douglas (evens); 114 & 117 N Madison; 111 N Spruce; 115-117 N Grove
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register Apr 5, 2016

Architect: Multiple Builders
Area of Significance: commerce
Architectural Style(s): Commercial Style; Modern Movement

The Ash-Grove Historic District on East Douglas Avenue was nominated under Criterion A for its association with the growth and development of this commercial cluster opposite Wichita East High School. The 2100-2300 Blocks of East Douglas Avenue were initially developed during a time when the city was experiencing explosive growth that led to neighborhood and commercial expansion outside the city's core. Development along this section of East Douglas, one of the city's main east-west thoroughfares, followed the establishment of Wichita’s "Auto-Row" on East Douglas immediately east of downtown and coincided with the selection of the south side of the 2200 block as home to Wichita's new high school, built in the 1920s to serve the eastward-marching Wichita population. This growth stalled by the end of the decade as the 1930s ushered in a focus on survival, not expansion. The second wave of development within this district spanned from 1940-1960. Wichita's World-War II and post-war growth was related largely to Wichita's aviation industry. Grove Street, the eastern boundary of the district, served as the north-south thoroughfare connecting the aviation businesses that had developed south and east of the city. Eight new buildings were constructed in this three-block area in the post-war era. The district generally took its current form by 1960. The Ash-Grove Historic District is locally significant; its period of significance spans from 1917 to 1960. The period begins with the earliest extant building's date of construction and ends with latest extant building's date of construction. All of the district's 19 properties were built during the span between these two buildings, reflecting two distinct periods of development. The buildings reflect two primary architectural styles -- Late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movement: Commercial Style and the Modern Movement in architecture. The district is composed primarily of secondary commercial and light industrial buildings that are distinguished as a group by their high level of integrity.
