Uniroyal Tire Factory

The Samson Uniroyal Tire Factory was designed and built in 1930 by one of the greatest Los Angeles Art Deco architects Stiles O. Clements, this amazing reproduction of a Assyrian Palace served as the offices and walled facade for Uniroyal Tire. The factory sat right along the I 5 fwy in Los Angeles, and it also was used as a backdrop in the movie "Ben Hur" This building has been a LA landmark for over seventy five years.
Clements also was the designer and architect of these historic landmark buildings in LA and they include, The Mayan Theatre, El Capitan Theater Building, the great art deco Pellessier Building/Wiltern Theatre, the Richfield Tower which was tragically demolished in 1969 and so many others.......when Uniroyal stopped tire production here the property sat empty for many years until a group of investors knocked down the factory......saving the facade and offices and built a series of outlet stores behind the walls and the property today is called The Citadel

Zearing History:
The railroad came through Lincoln Township in 1881. It was proposed that a town be located in Lincoln township. The railroad favored a location on the Charles Hurst farm. The name, Ashurst, was selected for the new town. It was a contraction of the name, Ash, who was a railroad main, and the name, Hurst, owner of the land where the town was to be located.

Some of the pioneers objected to the location. Those who opposed the Hurst land for the location of the new town won the argument. The town was located on the Edward G. Richardson farm.
The name was disputed and later Zearing was decided upon. Zearing is named after Judge William Mitchell Zearing of Chicago, IL. Judge Zearing owned land in Lincoln township, but never set foot here. His contribution came in the form of a bell given to the first church in Zearing.

Elkhart, Morton County, Kansas, 1916.
Elkhart is the county seat of Morton County. The south edge of the city is the Kansas-Oklahoma state border, and the city is 8.5 miles (13.7 km) from the Kansas-Colorado border. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 2,205. Elkhart was founded in 1913, and was named after Elkhart, Indiana.
In 1961, the county seat was moved from Richfield to Elkhart.
