The north side of the 1800 block of Park Road, NW features a distinguished group of ten large turn-of-the-century suburban residences, impressively sited on terraces above a curving cross-town artery. Together, the houses offer an exceptional display of Edwardian-era architectural eclecticism in Mount Pleasant.
In a community dominated by speculative rowhouse development, this unique group of large, custom-designed houses illustrates the aspirations of prosperous businessmen, bankers, and professionals. Included in the block are buildings designed by several locally prominent architects, including Frederick B. Pyle, Harding & Upman, Appleton P. Clark, and C.A. Didden & Son. The ten houses were built between 1892 and 1911 and feature a variety of distinctive design elements between them.
