The houses in this community represent two distinct period of American Architecture. The Oldest structures (1880 – 1915) closer to downtown are generally two-story Victorian homes characterized by complex roof forms, asymmetrical massing, and scroll-cut decorative trim. These transition in the latter part of that period into more symmetrical homes that freely borrow some Classical elements, especially porch columns. Later housing (1910 – 1930) is generally Craftsman, or Bungalow style, usually one-story homes characterized by low-slung roofs with exposed rafters and large porches.
