The Marysville Junior and Senior High School Complex has been nominated for placement on the National Register of Historic Places. The stadium and playing field were constructed in 1937 while the high school was built in 1939, both part of the Works Progress Administration. The Junior High was built 30 years after the high school in 1967 and then they were connected in 1993. It’s being nominated as part of the New Deal-era Resources of Kansas and Historic Public Schools of Kansas for the local significance the school plays in education and architecture. The Kansas Historic Society also nominated 9 other buildings and these nominations will be evaluated by the professional staff of the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places. If they agree that the properties are eligible, they will then be listed on the National Register.
