The list of Kansas' historic locations continues to grow with the addition of several new properties to the latest listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
Among the new additions were two former hospital buildings, an early 20th century photography studio, a public school complex, former railroad depot and a Jewish cemetery.
The Kansas Historical Society announced Thursday that the locations were included in the National Register on Jan. 2.
Two Kansas properties were removed from the register because they were either significantly altered from their historic condition or have been demolished.
Since 1996, the United States has compiled a list of historic properties under the National Historic Preservation Act. The intent is to identify historic properties and protect them for cultural purposes.
