With more than 213 structures of historic importance, this neighborhood was first settled by members of the Society of Friends, later by free blacks and German immigrants. Enrolled on the National Register of Historic Places, several significant structures were catalogued by the Historic American Buildings Survey. Today, quaint shops and restaurants are nestled in and among the fine residential structures.
