Thematic Nomination and Multiple Property Documentation
National Register of Historic Places

Leavenworth County

This document is based on archival research and a field survey of known Feth-designed properties initiated by the City of Leavenworth and the Preservation Alliance of Leavenworth. This multiple property document is a unique product in that it is the first in Kansas recognizing the contributions of a particular architect or firm to his community. Most multiple property documents are specific to property types like theaters, schools, or bridges. This father and son designed more than 60 buildings in Leavenworth from 1895 to 1942. Their work included such landmarks as the Leavenworth County Courthouse, the Leavenworth City Hall, and the original Leavenworth High School. The multiple property document includes three associated historic contexts: (1) The Designs of William P. Feth, ca. 1895-1919; (2) The Designs of Feth and Feth, 1920-1930; and (3) The Designs of Myron K. Feth, 1931-1942. A list of known Feth-designed properties, associated property types, and registration requirements is included.
