    Crest Theatre- Great Bend KS (1)

    nrhp # 05000003- Previously at this address had stood the Kansan Theatre, operated by Commonwealth Amusements from at least 1941. The Crest Theater opened on November 9, 1950, and was operated by Commonwealth Amusement Corp. Seating was provided for 985 in orchestra and balcony levels.

    This former movie theater was renovated for use as a community theater. Some of its uses are musical concerts, dance, lectures and seminars. The Crest Theater was placed on the National Register of Historical Places in 2005.

    Winter

    I caught this on my way home from a movie or something. All I know is I said to myself I will kick myself forever if I didn't capture the moment! I really liked how these trees were lit and the shadows cast. Fortunately it wasn't too cold and if memory serves correctly, this was the first snow fall of the year. The shot was taken over at Felker Park near the baseball diamonds and tennis courts.

    Wolf Hotel- Ellinwood KS (4)

    nrhp # 02001295- The Wolf Hotel was built in 1894 by John Wolf as an addition to the Delmonico Hotel which would have stood just north of the building which is now the Sunflower Bank parking lot. The addition would add several rooms to the Hotel along with a new lobby, underground stores and the Bank of Ellinwood. The Bank was the last to open due to intricate tile work being laid. The lobby sat on the east side of the building and the bank sat on the west. Downstairs, which was part of the underground tunnel system that ran through Ellinwood, were the Drummer's room, and Joe's Snack Counter. The downstairs changed many times becoming Weber's Sample Room, the library, a gym and another underground bar and cards room. The downstairs still houses the first air condiitoner in Barton County. Fred Wolf, John Wolf's son, added on the Sunflower Dining room in 1924. It was a prestigious restaurant that attracted people from many places with its amber lighting and wheat shock columns. The Wolf Hotel has been home to many businesses throughout the years. For the past thirty plus years it has been an antique store, until Christopher McCord purchased the building in 2013.

    Wolf Park Band Shell- Ellinwood KS (2)

    nrhp # 03000706- Fred Wolf bought the lots for a park on Mainstreet and in 1930 a bandshell was built by Young Construction Company of Hutchinson for under $4000. There was seating for 35 muscicians. Trees, shrubs, flowers, paths, and a gold fish pool were designed for the park. Soon seating for 250 was added in front of the bandshell.

    Bill Junge(the same man who owned the barbershop and bath house in the Dick Building) headed a town band of 16 pieces. There was a dedication June 11, 1935 with 1000 people attending. There were numerous summer concerts, sometimes weekly at the bandshell. By 1939 an apron, 30 feet long and 10 feet wide, was added to accommodate all the musicians.

    The Fred Wolf Memorial stands at the front of the park with a bronze by Professor Onorio Ruololo, head of the Leonardo de Vinci School of Art in New York City. The seats and gold fish pool and many of the plantings have been removed but efforts are underway to renovate Wolf Park. Much work has been done to refurbish the bandshell which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Ellinwood's "After Harvest Festival" events take place in the park and bandshell annually the third weekend of July.

    Westridge Mall Sunset

    Taken at Westridge Mall in Topeka, KS. I initially was going to pass on this shot but decided the light was too good to pass up! I'm so glad I didn't pass it up.
