  18. Lakeview (2)
  19. Lakeview field, 5.5 miles northwest of Lawrence on Scenic River Rd. This field just south of the Kansas River oxbow loop shows the soil fertility. The bottomland silt produces crops of hay, wheat, corn, soybeans, and other crops. Charles and Mary Langston owned a farm near here from 1870 to about 1892. Charles was already in his fifties when he took up farming. The Langstons raised wheat, rye, corn, oats, Irish potatoes, and sweet potatoes. In 1883 A. T. Andreas observed: [Langston] has one of the finest apple orchards in the State, and plenty of small fruit (History of the State of Kansas). Andreas goes on to describe the farm: It is all inclosed [sic] and all under cultivation except thirty acres of timber land. He has a comfortable residence and good farm buildings. (1)
  20. Lakeview School (1)
  21. Lakeview School, 1908. This photograph from the Shane-Thompson Collection of the Kansas Collection at the University of Kansas shows a classroom about 25 years after the Charles and Mary Langston family moved away from Lakeview. The one-room schoolhouses included all grades, with a limit of 60 students. Here the older students wear suits and ties. In this area the classes were integrated through all grades. Langston Hughes's mother and uncle probably attended this school. From 1860 to 1877, Lakeview School was in a smaller building located north of the railroad tracks. In 1877, the brick and stone schoolhouse was built. An 1880 newspaper clipping describes a school program of songs, pantomimes, tableaus, recitations, orations, and dialogues. This may have been an inspiration for Carrie Langston's interest in theater. (1)
