TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wamego home and a former high school in Belleville are among the newest Kansas sites added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Kansas Historical Society said in a release that the listings were entered into the National Register on June 25, bringing the total number of Kansas listings in the National Register to 1,317.

The several new listings include the Cassius and Adelia Baker House in Wamego. The Craftsman-style home was built in 1910 for Baker, who was a prominent member of the local business community.

Belleville High School in Belleville, which dates back to the early 1930s, was also added to the list. It was designed by Wichita architect Samuel Voigt and is an example of the Collegiate Gothic style.
