KHS Nominates 10 Sites For The National Register Of Historic Places
The Kansas Historical Society has nominated 10 sites to add to the National Register of Historic Places.
The list the KHS released Wednesday includes Gasier Carriage Works in the 200 block of north Saint Francis in Wichita.
The-story brick building housed the Carriage Works from 1910 to 1957. W.H. Gaiser first used the building for his carriage business until 1920, when he shifted his focus into making automobiles.
Some of the other sites include:
- The eastern portion of KU's campus in Lawrence where the Oregon and California trials converged in Kansas.
- Two buildings in Kansas City that have ties to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.
- The City Square Park Bandstand in Humboldt.
