Sternberg Mansion BEST Old Drawing
Drawing of the W.H. Sternberg Mansion in Wichita, KS, (drawing, circa 1975). Sternberg Mansion built, 1886. The residence was built by the area's leading designer & builder at a time when Wichita was one of the fastest growing cities in the Country. Sternberg both designed and built several homes for himself and family members and this was certainly the largest and most ornate of those personal residences. Sternberg was quite involved in the design of residences he built and was well known in New York and Kansas as being a "trend-setter" when it came to innovative and stylish designs. In southern New York State, for example, he's credited with having introduced the mansard-style roof after attending the Paris Word's Fair in 1855. Certain design elements frequently re-appear throughout Sternberg homes helping to make their identification somewhat easier. Other Sternberg-designed-built buildings are known to exist outside of Kansas, for example in New York and Missouri. It's suspected that there may be Sternberg homes / buildings in Illinois, Indiana and/or Connecticut and possibly other states. Sternberg is known to have bid and worked on projects throughout the state of New York and the central plains region. Sternberg Mansion at 1065 N. Waco Avenue in Wichita, KS is almost 8,000 sq. ft. with a full basement and four floors above that. It is quite tall with chimney's topping about 45 feet from the ground. Sternberg was known for designing multiple porches and Victorians loved the aspect of porches or balconies. Sternberg Mansion has 7 porches in all (3 on the 1st floor - including a large one on the south side that wraps around the kitchen door and the side door, 2 on the second floor and 2 on the 3rd floor). There are five fireplaces (soon to be six when the south chimney column is re-built) and an original 4-light gas newel post lamp in addition to approximately 90 windows (all of which are original to 1886). There are a variety of original (1860 - 1880) kerosene pull-down lamps throughout the mansion and it is mostly furnished with original furniture from the period (1870s - 1880s) including intricately woven portieres and tassles from the late 1800s. There are several ornate original 1800s fretworks. Over the years some of the hardware (doors, windows, latches and lifts, etc) has been replaced with new, however as renovation continues at the mansion, this new hardware is being replaced with original late 1800s hardware). In the late 1800s the influences of Asian culture were very high-ranking on Victorian decorating themes. The Oriental pattern was a complete line of home hardware and has three elements recurring in its pattern: an open fan, the rising sun and bamboo. Branford Lock Works of Branford, Connecticut first produced the Oriental pattern in 1885. It’s unknown what pattern of hardware was originally installed in Sternberg Mansion since several different patterns can be now be seen (Oriental among them), but its quite likely it was either Oriental or Broken Leaf. Both of those were new on the market in 1886 and quite stylish. In Wichita's early days, Waco Avenue was the "Elite Street" and grand mansions (such as Sternberg Mansion, Ross Mansion & the Smyth Mansion) dotted Wichita's most exclusive avenue. A Wichita Evening Eagle newspaper article on August 3, 1933 comments, “in the early ‘70s (1870s)…Waco avenue was ‘the elite’ street. Waco avenue in the very early day was considered to be the best residential street and many believed that when the city grew large it would be the choice residence district of the city.” Back in the late 1800s, the river (but a few blocks from Sternberg Mansion) had a different course. As you go south from the Mansion towards Douglas Avenue, the river ran further east and Waco was not a through street, but a cul-de-sac lined with grand homes of Wichita well-to-do. In the late 1800s, Waco was “the” street to be on” and it was Wichita’s original birth place. The first house ever built in Wichita (the Munger House now in Old Cowtown Museum) was one block south of here and there is a bronze plaque at that location placed there by the Historic Preservation Board commemorating its significance. In 1873 trolley service began in Wichita and there was a trolley switching station on the northeast corner of Waco and 10th (catty-corner from here). Very quickly Wichita grew and became called the “Mecca of Men”, the “Peerless Princess of the Plains”, the “Magical Mascot”, the “Jerusalem of the West”, “The New Chicago”, “The Eighth Wonder” and “The Commercial Wonder”. Waco was the finest residential district in early-day Wichita. Grand palatial homes all new and dazzling dotted Waco and the nouveau-rich displayed their new-found money with their homes and W.H. Sternberg was the builder of choice for such homes. At this time, Waco residents became dissatisfied with the rather ordinary name of just “Waco” and petitioned t
Eagle Creek trail hugs canyon
Please read the hiking caution at the bottom of this narrative: Hiking up the Eagle Creek trail, The trail can be seen along the top left hand portion of this photo and the High Bridge, which crosses Eagle Creek is in the upper portion, center of the photo.This is a good section of trail to pay attention to where you step. A rolled ankle here could mean a long fall. What a spectacular trail. A few days ago I had hiked the trails of the Gingko Petrified Forest near Ellensburg, Washington. That trail, like this one, was built by the CCC back in the 1930s. The Eagle Creek Trail must have required a great deal of care and skill to complete. It was originally part of the Pacific Crest Trail, but now the PCT has been re-routed and does not include the Eagle Creek section. Still, many PCT hikers can't stand the thought of missing this wonderful section of trail, so hike it instead of the new section. Extemporaneous hike. Decided at 9:00 am 27 Feb 2009, to hike a portion of the Eagle Creek trail. The trail is located in Oregon on the left bank of the Columbia River, near the town of Cascade Locks. I arrived at the trailhead at 12:30 pm; started hiking at 12:45 pm. With two side trips down a muddy slope to get photos of Lower Punchbowl Falls, and from the brink of the Upper Punchbowl Falls, I arrived at the High Bridge over Eagle Creek at 2:30 pm. There I had a late lunch. I got back to the trailhead at 3:45 pm. So with lots of stops to take these photos, and many more, it was a three hour round trip hike of around 6 miles. The lower trail was muddy, but most of the trail was in excellent shape. There was snow on portions of the trail, which increased, as I approached the high bridge. I didn't go beyond the high bridge, due to time and amount of snow appearing on the trail. This was my first hike up Eagle Creek, but it won't be my last. A beautiful hike. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx UPDATE: A flickr friend just sent me this article of a recent death on this trail. I removed the victims name but the warning of hiking trails such as these: Mar-17-2009 09:35 Hiker Falls to Her Death at Eagle Creek Trail Salem-News.com It is the second hiking-related death at Eagle Creek in the last three weeks. The trail at Eagle Creek can be extremely dangerous. Special thanks to: z.hubpages.com (CASCADE LOCKS, Ore.) - Deputies say a 23-year old Portland woman died Monday afternoon after falling from a popular hiking trail west of Cascade Locks. Deputy Matt English with the Hood River County Sheriff's Office, says their 911 center received a call at 6:09 p.m. from a man who had accompanied the woman on the hike. He reported that she had died after falling off of a cliff. "Rescue teams reached the location shortly after 7:00 p.m." English said. "They found the body of XXXXXX of Portland, down an embankment, about 100 feet off of the trail. The trail was wet and rescuers reported sleet and hail in the area of the fall. The case is still under investigation and more information will be released when available." English says the area where the fall occurred was about one mile south of the parking lot at the Eagle Creek Trailhead. This is the second death that has occurred on the trail in less than one month. On February 26, 2009, the body of XXXXX was found on the trail, about three miles from the parking lot. Results of the autopsy in that case are still pending. Hikers are asked to use caution when navigating trails this time of year. Heavy rains can lead to trails being slippery and can create conditions that are often difficult to navigate. It is always recommended to notify someone of your itinerary and to hike with a companion.
