El Dorado Downtown Historic District

Picture of property Downtown El Dorado
El Dorado (Butler County)
Listed in National Register 2013-10-30

Architect: Boller Brothers; George Washburn; etc.
Category: commerce

The El Dorado Downtown Historic District encompasses the heart of El Dorado's central business district, incorporating 111 properties along Main Street, the main north/south thoroughfare (U.S. 77), and Central Avenue (U.S. 54), the main east/west thoroughfare. El Dorado was platted in 1868 and incorporated in 1871, but serious development came later with the arrival of rail lines - the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad in 1877 and the St. Louis, Fort Scott & Wichita Railroad in 1883. The city’s early economy was tied entirely to its role as a railroad and trade center for the region’s thriving farming and ranching industries. The discovery of oil near El Dorado in 1915 dramatically changed the downtown. The boom financed civic and infrastructure improvements and created new markets for downtown businesses. In 1939, the WPA Guide described El Dorado's business district as "a mixture of sturdy plain limestone buildings of pioneer days and ornate structures built during the oil boom." Today, the extant buildings interpret an array of historic uses and interpret the community's evolution from a railroad shipping point to an oil town to a mid-century auto-friendly business district. The El Dorado Downtown Historic District was nominated for its local significance in the areas of community planning and commerce.
