|The University of Kansas Historic District (District) is significant at the local and state levels under National Register Criterion A for the area of EDUCATION and under National Register Criterion C for the areas of ARCHITECTURE and LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE. The 26 contributing resources and 6 resources previously listed in the National Register (52 total resources) occupy 85 acres flanking Jayhawk Boulevard at the heart of the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas. These buildings, structures, sites, and objects constructed between 1878 and 2008 reflect the primary academic core of the university campus that evolved along Jayhawk Boulevard. As the state's public liberal arts university, KU developed a broad mission to provide instruction in multiple academic fields in an environment that supports the cultural aspects of attending the University. All of the resources support the primary mission of KU as an institution of higher learning. The District is an excellent, intact example of a cohesive university campus that developed over time. The placement of buildings, sites, and objects, and the presence of landscape features reflect the importance of historic landscape design and master planning.
