Kansas Register of Historic Places Nomination: Kaufman Building - Built in 1924, the Kaufman Building is significant for its association with Wichita’s role as a wholesale wheat-trading center during the 1920s and as an example of architect-designed early twentieth-century fireproof commercial construction. Local entrepreneur Hilbert Kaufman commissioned the building in 1922 and hired the architecture firm of Eberson and Weaver, a Chicago-based firm, to design his building.
