The 200 block of S. Kansas Avenue was initially developed during a time when the city was experiencing explosive growth that led to the 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 E. 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. In addition to reflecting the city’s eastward growth and resulting residential development, the S. Kansas Avenue Historic District represents the work of local contractor Raymond P. Pinegar.
