TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas board has nominated 10 properties around the state for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, including two public school buildings.
The Kansas State Historical Society says the state Historic Sites Board of Review nominated the sites during its quarterly meeting earlier this month.
The nominees include the historic Belleville High School building in Belleville, which opened in 1931. The structure is now a middle school that the local school district plans to close.
Another nominee is the former Franklin Elementary School in Kansas City, Kansas. It opened in 1898 and closed in 1973.
The Kansas board also nominated apartment buildings in Wichita, barns in Chase County, a Mitchell County farmstead, houses in the cities of Douglass and Wamego and Santa Fe Trail sites in Rice County.
