The Victorian District

The Victorian District

Is an area developed from 1870 to 1910. In 1869 a streetcar system was installed. The boundaries are roughly East Broad on the East, MLK on the West, Anderson Lane on the South and Gwinett St. on the North. It is here where we start to notice the lack of parks or square between the grids, and have the patch of grass between street and sidewalk, and small gardens in front of the homes. The homes here are beautifully embellished with ornate details. Sadly, with the mass production of the automobile, also cam a depression in the area as residents were able to drive out to suburban areas. However, active revitalization is underway. Prices in the area vary.
