Notes
Survey number HABS KS-53-G
Building/structure dates: 1877 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000346
Significance: Building #433 is an elegant version of the frame center-gable cottage, popular in the latter quarter of the nineteenth century. This double residence has retained its stylish embellishments, including expansive porches with chamfered posts and kneebraces, decorated and bracketed cornices and kingposts, and canted bays. The residences on Riverside Avenue derive their historical significance from their relationship with the Military Prison, established in 1875. These buildings were provided soon after as quarters for officers serving at the prison. The buildings and their site retain a high degree of integrity.
