Lemp Avenue Between Cherokee and Utah Streets, West Side

Heading north up Lemp Avenue from Cherokee Street, we see a wide variety of houses and uses.

There are houses that date back to the 1860s and later. Different setbacks reflect different attitudes about the definition of the front and back yard throughout the decades.

And as the neighborhood became dense, machine shops and light industry worked their way in between what had originally been largely residential.

The Second Empire style predominates among the Greek Revival as the neighborhood developed more rapidly after the Civil War.

And houses sit right next to each other, some with their original window sashes and cornices.
