Extending an early twentieth century trend of southern and western residential expansion in Lawrence, Charles E. Sutton developed the Breezedale Addition and the streetcar route at the southern end of Massachusetts Street.

This was the first attempt in Larwerence to create an identifiable surburban neighborhood. The district includes fourteen contributing and five non-contributing resources. It was nominated as part of the "Historic Resources of Lawrence" multiple property nomination for its association with local development and its early twentieth century architecture.

Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in National Register 2019-03-07

Architect: George Beal
Category: domestic; single dwelling

The Chewning House is located at 1510 Stratford Road in the West Hills neighborhood just west of the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas. It was built in 1936 and designed by George M. Beal, chair of the University of Kansas Architecture program. The house is one of the 1,000 houses built in the United States as part of the General Electric “New American Home” program, which involved General Electric and the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The program was started to stimulate the economy and put people to work during the Great Depression and aimed to utilize local financiers, builders and suppliers. It is the only known GE “New American Home” in the immediate vicinity of Lawrence and one of the earliest examples of the Modern movement in residential architecture in Lawrence. It is being nominated under the Historic Resources of Lawrence Multiple Property Documentation Form. It predates the “Lawrence Modern, 1945-1975” MPS amendment, but fits into the context as being modern in design and is also associated with the Federal Housing Administration.
