East Walnut Avenue, West of National Avenue, Springfield

Comprising of 153 contributing structures, the East Walnut Street Historic District, like many cities, is one long thoroughfare that chronicles the passage of time and the development of American residential architecture. The first few blocks will look at shows the expression of the Queen Anne Style.

These represent the 21 houses in the district built before 1900.

These houses are on the south side of the street, as the north side west of National Avenue has been mostly demolished for parking lots or newer strucures.

Many have been carefully restored and look great.

Here is one example of a house on the north side of the street demolished for new construction.
