Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register Jan 18, 2011

Architect: Lorentz Schmidt
Area of Significance: vacant/not in use; school
Architectural Style(s): Commercial Style
Thematic Nomination: Historic Public Schools of Kansas

In 1912, Wichita boasted 20 public school buildings, but by 1916, there were not enough buildings to accommodate the city’s growing population. Among the neighborhoods in need of an elementary school was the Sunnyside Addition, which stretches from Kellogg on the north to Gilbert on the south, and from Hillside on the east to Dixon on the west. The school district hired local architect Lorentz Schmidt and the firm Vandenburg and Pauley to construct the building. Construction was completed in early 1917, and additions were added in 1920 and 1923. The growing neighborhood was impacted by the expansion of Kellogg Avenue in 1955, and as traffic increased, it was no longer possible for pedestrians to safely cross Kellogg. In 1977, the highway was expanded to six lanes and safety dictated that a pedestrian walkway be constructed to allow students and others to cross Kellogg near Sunnyside School. Despite strong opposition from the neighborhood, Sunnyside School closed in 1996. It was nominated as part of the “Historic Public Schools of Kansas” multiple property listing for its association with local education and its architecture.

Sutton Place

Picture of property 209 E William St
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register Feb 3, 2020

Architect: Roy E. Calvin
Area of Significance: commerce; business
Architectural Style(s): Modern Movement

Sutton Place is a ten-story rectangular-shaped building constructed in 1925 with a major alteration in 1966 that changed the building from Neoclassical style architecture to New Formalist style architecture. The renovation, which began in 1965 and was completed in 1966, was designed by Wichita-based architect Roy E. Calvin. The building is reinforced concrete and steel-framed structure clad in pre-cast concrete panels and curtain wall at its primary north and west elevations and painted utilitarian brick on its secondary south and east elevations. The building’s 140-foot length (east to west) is divided into 14 evenly spaced bays, and the building’s 70-foot width (north to south) is divided into eight evenly spaced bays. The interior of the building features non-historic materials throughout resulting from multiple 20th-century renovations reflecting the changing of tenants. Floor plans vary throughout all floors, with no overall consistency. The first floor of the building features an entrance lobby flanked by storefront tenant spaces and offices. Floors 2-9 were utilized as office space. The tenth floor was utilized as private event space. Access to the floors is provided by three passenger elevators and one internal stair tower. A penthouse is located on the roof, which was constructed as a secondary residence for O.A. Sutton, the namesake of the building.

Union National Bank Building

Picture of property 104 S Broadway
Wichita (Sedgwick County)
Listed in National Register Feb 3, 2012

Architect: Vizthum and Burns
Area of Significance: commerce
Architectural Style(s): Chicago
Thematic Nomination: African American Resources in Wichita, KS

Built in 1926, the 14-story Union National Bank building is a classic example of a tall, concrete-framed, Chicago-style office building. The building was financed by the Edith Rockefeller McCormick Trust of Chicago, designed by K. M. Vitzthum and J. J. Burns Architects, and constructed by Wichita builder George Siedhoff. It took just eight months to complete the building at a cost of $200,000, and upon its completion it was the tallest building in Kansas. The building is particularly significant as the location of a student-led sit-in in 1958 at the Dockum Drug Store on the first floor. With support from the local NAACP chapter and leaders such as Chester Lewis and Vivian Parks, a group of young African Americans peacefully protested the drug store's discriminatory policies for three weeks. Their efforts convinced the Dockum company and the associated Rexall corporation to change their policies in stores throughout Kansas. Although rarely recognized, this protest inspired other sit-ins in Oklahoma City and across the country. The building is nominated for its architectural significance and as part of the "African American Resources of Wichita" multiple property nomination for its association with the 1958 sit-in.
