Fairmount Church campaign close to home

Fairmount Church campaign close to home

Inside WSU:02-01-2007

"Sitting prettily on the southwest corner of Fairmount and 16th Street is one of the remaining icons of Wichita State's earliest days — the former Fairmount Congregational Church.

"Now known as Fairmount United Church of Christ, the building won a place in the Kansas State Register of Historic Places in November...

"Two elements of the building, built in 1910, put it over the top for earning the designation, said George Platt, associate professor emeritus of public administration. Those elements are the two large stained glass windows dedicated to Nathan Morrison, the first president of Fairmount College, and William Henry Isely, the first dean."
