Park Road, NW, North Side of 1800 Block

This block includes several large Colonial Revival houses built in Mount Pleasant in the early 20th century.

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.
