TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A 19th-century church in eastern Kansas is one of 10 sites nominated by the state Historical Society for placement on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Congregational Church was built between 1858 and 1861 in Osawatomie, a town was settled in 1854 by abolitionists from Ohio and New York. Services were held in the building until 1898.
Other Kansas nominees are the Arvonia School and Calvinistic Methodist Church in Osage County, and the Norden Bombsight Storage Vaults at the former Pratt Army Airfield in Pratt. The bombsights were considered essential to the Allied victory in World War II for their ability to help air crews drop munitions.
The nominations will be sent to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places for consideration.
