The Roanoke Park Historic District is roughly bounded by East Roanoke Street, Harvard Avenue East, East Shelby Street, and 10th Avenue East, the district includes 101 properties, 80 of which contribute to the historic district. The district’s significance began in 1889 (the earliest construction date) and ended in 1939, by which time most of the lots had been developed. The greatest number of houses in the district were constructed between 1908 and 1910. The historic district contains a variety of architectural styles, including the Colonial Revival, Neo-classical Revival, Tudor Revival, Mission/Spanish Revival, English Arts and Crafts, Craftsman, American Foursquare, Italian Renaissance, French Norman Revival, and many others. In addition to its architecture, the Roanoke Park Historic District is notable for its park and landscape, both of which are considered contributing features. The NRHP nomination (pdf 4.1mb) describes Roanoke Park as “the district’s jewel, a 2.2-acre, green gateway” to the neighborhood.
