Facts

  • Although the exact year of construction is undetermined, the two indentical smoke stacks are believed to be the oldest, undisturbed industrial structures in Kansas City, Kansas.
  • The Sinclair Refining Corporation operates a petroleum tank farm on the site. All other production activities ceased following the 1951 flood.
  • The "incised decoration" the entire length of each provides the "aspect of a timely proportioned sculpture," according to a local historical and architectural book by Larry Hancks.
