Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in State Register 2012-02-18

Architect: unknown
Category: vacant/not in use; warehouse

The Richardson Produce Warehouse is located in a historically industrial area south of Douglas Avenue in downtown Wichita. The warehouse was built in the early years of the 20th century as wholesale houses were being constructed to the north and south of Douglas Avenue. All were situated on the rail lines that spanned Wichita near the center of town creating a viable warehouse district; many of those buildings are extant. This warehouse was located near three trunk line freight depots. The trunk line railroad tracks that once traversed Rock Island and Mead Avenues have been removed and paved streets are now in place immediately on the east and the west sides of the Richardson Warehouse. Many companies used this particular warehouse over the years for storage and shipment of hardware supplies, poultry and eggs, wholesale groceries, and produce. It is named for Raymond R. Richardson whose wholesale produce company occupied the building from 1937 to 1952. It is nominated for its role in Wichita's wholesale activity and for its relationship to the transportation of goods by railroad during the first half of the 20th century.
