Assessment of the Unitarian Fellowship of Lawrence's Adaptive Reuse of the Pleasant Valley District #14 Schoolhouse
This paper by University of Kansas student Dan Carey (later Dan Carey-Whalen) describes the historical and architectural importance of the Pleasant Valley #14 schoolhouse which was purchased as a meeting house in 1960 by the Unitarian Fellowship of Lawrence, Kansas. Citing the building's suitability for the National Register of Historic Places, Carey proposes various preservation-minded measures for its adaptive use. Included are photographic negatives of the meeting house.
