Union Street forms the boundary between the two major street grids of Lincoln; to the east is the diagonal street grid which is oriented to the major train line that stretches between St. Louis and Chicago, and to the west is a street grid which is oriented to the cardinal directions. Union Street is oriented to the latter.
There is a wealth of stunning Queen Anne style houses, lovingly restored with exuberant paint schemes, which would have been accurate to the time.
But then, out of nowhere, is this amazing Spanish Revival house, which are often inspired by the rise of Hollywood.
There are also some Shingle Style houses, such as the one below and the first photo; for simplicity’s sake under the tags I’ve grouped them inadequately under Queen Anne just so there’s not too many tags!
Near the intersection with Woodlawn on Lincoln Avenue is this beauty, sitting on a huge lot surrounded by towering trees.
