McNair Avenue from Arsenal to Lynch Streets

Heading north up McNair Avenue from Arsenal Street there is a mix of older exurban houses, such as the one below, with an original alley house, with the later Second Empire examples.

The remnants of a saloon sign is still visible on this building, where McNair doglegs at the intersection of Lynch Street. Due to the fields that stretched through the common fields, the plats are irregular through here.

Then, as the Nineteenth Century comes to a close, the style becomes more of an eclectic mix of styles, with Romanesque influences and other revivals.

There are other massive Second Empire storefronts with large apartments up above.

And then apartment buildings from the 1890s are squeezed in between Second Empire houses from the 1870s and 80s.
