Rosberg-Holmgren-Clareen Block

Picture of property 109-113 N Main St
Lindsborg (McPherson County)
Listed in National Register 2016-10-11

Architect: unknown
Category: restaurant; specialty store; single dwelling

The Rosberg-Holmgren-Clareen Block is an excellent intact representative of the early permanent commercial structures constructed by Swedish immigrants on Lindsborg’s Main Street. Between these three nearly identical buildings were numerous enterprises, most of which were family businesses that served Lindsborg residents for decades and provided essential goods and services. The business owners were pillars of the community. Albert Train and C.V. Rosberg were members of the Commercial Club (precursor to the Chamber of Commerce); Train was also a member of the fire company. Rosberg was a city councilman; the Train family helped found the Bethany Church. Rosberg, Train, Runbeck, and Peterson were multi-generation business owners and all were first or second generation immigrants. The three buildings are excellent examples of a Commercial Style building with Italianate detailing distinguished by their brick corbelling, ornate metal window hoods, cast-iron storefront columns, and wood-framed transoms. This nomination expanded and amended the nomination of the Clareen/Peterson Restaurant Building that was individually listed in the National Register on April 22, 2009.

Schroeder, Heinrich H., Barn

Picture of property 632 29th Avenue
Canton (McPherson County)
Listed in National Register 2005-09-21

Architect: Not listed
Category: animal facility

The Schroeder Barn was completed in 1915 on the farmstead of Heinrich H. Schroeder, an immigrant farmer and Mennonite from South Russia. The cash crop for the Schroeder farm was wheat, but prairie grass and alfalfa were grown for hay to feed the draft horses and milk cows. The farm also produced the family's food. Chickens, cows, and pigs were all kept to provide the family with milk, eggs, and meat. The barn was erected in 1915 during a period of prosperity on the farm, and it provided shelter for the various farm animals and storage for grain and hay. It was damaged by a tornado in 1946, and its original gambrel roof was replaced with the current gable roof. It was nominated for its agricultural significance and association with Mennonite settlement of the Great Plains.

Listed in National Register 1972-02-23

Architect: Not listed
Category: manufacturing facility

The Smoky Valley Roller Mill is located on the northwest bank of the Smoky Hill River at the south edge of Lindsborg. It played a major role in the development of the wheat industry in the Lindsborg area. The three-story rectangular building is constructed of red brick and rough-cut limestone and was built in 1898 to replace an earlier structure that had burned. At that time, the mill's capacity was 125 barrels of flour per day with power provided by two turbine water wheels. The adjacent Teichgraeber-Runbeck House, built in 1906-1907, is associated with the mill and was nominated to the National Register in 2005. The Smoky Valley Roller Mill was nominated for its local significance in the areas of industry and agriculture.

Wilke, Fritz, House

Picture of property 105 N Front Street
Inman (McPherson County)
Listed in State Register 2011-05-14

Architect: Unknown
Category: domestic

Built circa 1881, the Fritz Wilke House is an excellent example of the National Folk tradition, which dominated residential architecture in the late 19th century post-railroad era. National Folk houses are typically modest and sometimes have stylistic detailing common to the period, but they are best classified by their mass-produced materials and simplistic form and plan. The Wilke family emigrated from Germany to Kansas and purchased land in McPherson County in 1881. The Wilke property was representative of a typical 160-acre German immigrant farmstead in Kansas during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Wilke’s semi-subsistence farm appears to have remained small and diversified in relation to the growing farming and ranching operations of the period with no particular specialization in swine, poultry, dairy, beef cattle, or grain production. The property remained in the Wilke family until the 1970s. The farmstead is no longer extant and was taken for the expansion of Highway 61, but the house has been saved and relocated to the nearby community of Inman. The house was nominated for its architecture.
