Ten Kansas sites to be considered as Historic Places

By Associated Press. CREATED Nov 21, 2013

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Ten sites have been nominated by a board of the Kansas Historical Society to be added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The list announced Wednesday includes an eastern portion of the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence and two locations where the Oregon and California trials converged in Kansas.

Other sites include two buildings in Kansas City, Kan., that have ties to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, a former school in rural Douglas County, the City Square Park Bandstand in Humboldt, and a youth cabin in Manhattan constructed during the Great Depression.

The list will be forwarded to Office of the Keeper of the National Historic Places in Washington, D.C., for evaluation.
