Eudora (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2014-05-03

Architect: Unknown
Category: commerce

The Seybold Building, located in downtown Eudora, was built in stages during the 1880s. German immigrant John A. Seybold, a tinsmith by trade, acquired land in downtown Eudora in 1870 and built a stone building on the north side of the lot in 1883 that connected to a brick building on the south side. Seybold, whose story is indicative of other immigrant German families that settled the Eudora area in the mid-19th century, operated his hardware business from this building, but he died in 1884. His wife Bertha Seybold managed the property through the 1910s. The Eudora Post Office moved into the building in 1897, where it remained until 1916. Beginning in 1920, the Trefz family operated various businesses from the building, including the Trefz Tin Shop and Trefz Plumbing, Heating, and Electric Store. The Eudora Area Historical Society recently acquired the building with the intent of housing its museum. It was nominated for its local significance in the area commerce.

Star Cash Grocery Store and Residence

Picture of property 696 E 1719 Rd
Baldwin City (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2019-09-30

Architect: Unknown
Category: domestic

The Star Cash Store and Residence property are eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for commerce, and Criterion C for architecture. The property derives local significance from its association with early Vinland, Kansas settlers George Cutter, William Barnes, and John Walton, and from later connections to the prominent Vinland mercantile families Kennedy, Varnum, Hoskinson, and Hagerman, and the entrepreneurial Chanay family. The property also holds two buildings exemplifying patterns of rural vernacular architecture typical of the times in which they were built – the residence in 1890, and the store in 1921. The store building is a surviving element of the busy mercantile life of a small rural village from the 1920s to the 1950s. Also, the buildings hold a significant place in the social lives of Vinland-area residents during the period of their active use in connection with the retail grocery business. Finally, the property is an important contributor to its broader environmental context, as an essential component of a conspicuous, nearly continuous row of largely unaltered period buildings constituting the historic main street of Vinland, Kansas.

On March 10, 1892 The Eudora News proclaimed, "Eudora is to have a bank." The small one-story brick and stone building opened its doors in June 1892.

The State Bank failed in 1923 and was then used by the Home State Bank and later the Kaw Valley State Bank. The building has long drawn the attention of passersby with its ornate and highly decorative cornice. It was nominated to the Register of Historic Kansas Places for its local significance in the area of commerce.
