History and General Neighborhood Information
On the blocks located along and between Hamilton Street and West William Street is a wonderful collection of houses, most of which were built between 1900 and 1950. This was a period of development when middle-class homes were built of quality construction on standard lots along straight streets and uniform blocks. Today there is a solid middle-class feel to the neighborhood that reflects a high percentage of properties which are resident-owned and proudly maintained. Public spaces are in good condition, there is an elementary school nearby, and shopping is literally a block or two away.
