Historic Summit Avenue Neighborhood (Saturday Morning)

With streets branded using urbane names such as “Park Avenue” and “Fifth Avenue”, the Summit Avenue neighborhood was soon lined with homes occupied by engineers and mechanics employed by the mills. Later houses were designed in styles such as Craftsman Bungalows and Rectinlinear Foursquares. The majority of the neighborhood maintained its industrial affiliation throughout the twentieth-century until its ample and affordable residences were re-discovered by artists and educators in the 1980s. Since then, the neighborhood has seen a great deal of reinvestment as a vibrant urban neighborhood.
