The Baker House, built in 1910, is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places for its local significance in the area of architecture. It is a well-maintained example of a Craftsman-style bungalow and has many of the features that characterize that style. This was the dominant style for smaller single-family houses built in the US from about 1905 until the 1920s, and the Baker House reflects the influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement in Kansas and the United States during the early 20th century.
