Kansas is having a vote on Feb. 18. We are on the list for the Register of Historic Kansas Places and the National Register of Historic Places. I'm so excited and wanted to share with you all. Our category is American Foursquare. Nobody famous lived here but the house is 100 and intact. Plus, I'm a researcher so I did all the legwork. In this state, besides bragging rights, we should get some tax credits from Kansas for qualified projects over $5,000.

This is wonderful news. Congratulations! I've always wondered how easy or difficult the National Register application process is.

Congrats on the register prospects. Went thru all that in 01 and 02. Its a lot of work but worth it. I like your state program better than ours. We have to spend 25K to qualify for it.
