Harding House; Wichita KS
This house at 1231 North Waco Avenue in Wichita, KS was designed and built by William Henry Sternberg (1832 - 1906) in 1885 for Russell Harding, superintendent for the St. Louis, Fort Scott & Wichita Railway. The house cost $4,000 to build at the time. Mr. Harding played an important roll in the management of the railroad, the third such one to arrive in Wichita. The Hardings left Wichita for “the Dakotas” in 1896, after which he ended up in New York, becoming the vice-president of the Missouri Pacific Railroad. Before departing Wichita, a grand party was thrown at this house which was attended by over 200 railroad men. Mr. Harding was presented with a gold watch in the front parlor, which was followed by singing and cigars. Other notable residents of the house include the Garvers. Mrs. Garver was the founder of the Wichita Children’s Home, after which the Steinbuchels occupied the house from 1911 to 1954. This house sits in a cluster of four confirmed Sternberg-designed & built homes all from the mid- to late-1880s. This represents the largest concentration of contiguous Sternberg-designed and built homes known to exist in the United States. This cluster or district has not yet been placed on the National Register of Historic Places but certainly should be as it contains historically and architecturally significant structures. The cluster consists of: 1231 North Waco Avenue - The Harding House 1235 North Waco Avenue 1230 North Waco Avenue - The Noble House 1226 North Waco Avenue This home features three covered porches on the ground level and a balcony above the front porch. Being a slightly more modest home, the Harding House has two main entry ways on the ground level vs. three main entryways on the ground level for larger designs. A corner turret occupies the southeast part of the house. There are two ornate fireplaces in the front parlors, both with faux-marbleized granite with inlaid tiles containing pictures of children (images of children incorporated into fireplace mantles are a common theme in Sternberg homes). The floors of the front parlors have the original hooks set in grommets which are recessed into the floor and serve to hold an area rug in place. A servant’s staircase formerly occupied the rear of the house but has been replaced by a full bathroom off the kitchen when the house was apartmentized. This staircase will be rebuilt. The same type of spiraling staircase can be seen going up into the attic. Sternberg never made interior staircases that didn't turn or double-back. Sometimes staircases were "S"-turns or "U"-turns or "L"-turns, but the interesting thing about Sternberg staircases is that at the point of entering the staircase, the end point where the stair-climber will end up is never apparent (not readily visible from the starting point). It's as if stairs are a mystical journey through the house offering intrigue by transporting people to other places yet unseen. Straight staircases are "boring". You can see where you'll end up when you start on the climb, but entering a Sternberg staircase and leaving a little to the imagination was a popular sought-after design (with a little selling involved on Sternberg's part, too). Sometimes the effect of such staircases also served a functional purpose... blocking the view of more private areas without needing walls or screens. The effect of this gives the house a larger, more open feel. One can almost imagine Sternberg sitting down with a prospective home-building couple, talking to them and suggesting these upscale features and seeing the delight in their eyes from such fashionable and forward-thinking designs. Typical of Sternberg-designed homes the roof section of the Harding House is an interesting hodge-podge of shapes and geometry. Included in the roof design is one shed dormer, one hipped dormer, one square dormer (somewhat of a recessed hipped dormer), one rounded conical shape and several varying pitches in addition to gables and porch roofs. The bell-cast roof over the front porch (called "bell-cast" because it flares out like a bell vs. being a straight diagonal) is similar in style to the square portion of the porch over the Pratt-Campbell Mansion (although the square portion on the Pratt-Campbell is not bell-cast, but angular in the same general style as seen here). Compare photos of the front porch roof of the Pratt-Campbell Mansion (in Photostream) to this one here and there is a striking similarity. Unfortunately the Pratt-Campbell was not built with anything over the front porch (porch or balcony railing) and that seems almost like an omission of traditional Sternberg-design. The house has been featured in the Wichita Eagle several times, once in 1976 and another time in the 1980’s. Both times, it was sporting its red, white and blue color scheme, given to celebrate the Bi-Centennial of the United States. A former resident oDead Bears (nice rug)
nostrils **************************** ********************************* They pose with the poor beast after killing it, proudly brandishing their weapon of choice. To kill the bears they bait the area for years, allowing the bears to be accustomed to the source of easy food, creating paths to and from their tragic bounty. The Hunters return when the bears are hungry after their winter's hibernation, or before the hibernation, as they try to bulk up for the long sleep. The Hunter's sit high up in the trees, armed as though they are overtaking a small country. The Hunter waits, and eats and drinks in comfort until the hapless beast wanders by for his daily munchies - AND THEN BLAM! ...the bear is dead. Now the hunter's celebrate their machismo, pose with the murder victim, discuss how they plan on stuffing and posing the bear, and what illegal body parts they plan on harvesting. ...and the bear is skinned. ...and the carcass is dragged out into the woods to rot. Meat and all. ...and for weeks all I hear is how big and strong they are. ...and around camp all I hear is "fag" this and "n*g*r " that. ...and I stand up to their offensive behaviours, only to be shouted down by an army of armed and bigoted killers. (You can't just walk home out here) ...and I am restricted from taking photos after they realize that I'm not taking Bear Murder Glorification photos like they wanted. ...and I am forced to hide my film while they sharpen their knives outside my tents door. ...and I am forced to sneak photos while they are off killing. ...and I tried to think of ways to capture the hypocrisy of these freaks and their "sport" - and one of my ideas is to memorialize the dead bears in other ways than murdered, and skinned. ...and I posed them. ...and I was flown out of camp by helicopter, earlier than agreed. Kicked out of camp, not because of the posed photos (they never knew) - because of the skinned photos. It was a horrible time - but the opportunity had presented itself to me. When would hunter's allow you to photograph stuff like this? Where do you find photos of this? I felt it needed to be done.
