About this Exploration:

Hoisington High School is one of the few schools listed on the National Historic Register.  It was granted NRHP status November 15, 2005.

Designed by Emporia architects Jerome Brinkman and Stanley Hagen, Hoisington High School was constructed in 1940 through the Public Works Administration (PWA). The three-story blond brick building features Art Deco-style stone ornamentation and carved detailing. The nomination also includes a 1937 native stone stadium constructed by the Works Projects Administration. The property was nominated as part of the "New Deal-Era Resources of Kansas" multiple property nomination for its contribution to community growth and for its architecture.
The native stone football stadium is in place on the north side of the football field at the rear of the high school. The stadium was constructed in 1938 through the Works Projects Administration (WPA).
