Historic Linwood District

The Linwood Historic Preservation District consists primarily of Linwood Avenue from North Street to West Ferry, a section of homes on both sides of Delaware Avenue, a small section of North Street and a few properties on Main Street.  
Dating from the 1820s, this tree-lined, residential neighborhood shows the work of many famous local architects and prime examples of styles including Vernacular, Second Empire, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Stick, Shingle, Queen Ann, and Georgian and Colonial Revival. Once a city suburb, the street was an extension of Franklin Street's "Pill Alley," home to upper middle class doctors, dentists, and lawyers who ran their practices out of their homes. This practice continues to this day.
