KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The National Park Service has added a former elementary school in Kansas City, Kan., that's long been used as a community center to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Kansas State Historical Society says the former Franklin Elementary School building is now one of about 1,300 Kansas sites on the national list of historically significant properties.

The Park Service added the school in the Argentine section of Kansas City, Kan., to the register last month.

The school opened in 1898, with four teachers and students in first through eighth grade. In 1910, the school was expanded to add six new classrooms.

The school closed in 1973, a victim of declining enrollment. However, a nonprofit community group later purchased the building for a center.
