Parkside Historic District
Along the eastern edge of Delaware Park lies a neighborhood that is packed full of beautiful homes and architectural jewels. Laid out as an original part of Frederick Law Olmsted's park system and surrounding areas, the Parkside Historic District showcases numerous examples of Victorian, Queen Anne, Shingle, Bungalow and Colonial Revival styled homes. The tree-lined, curved streets were direct extensions of Olmsted's pastoral aesthetics he originally envisioned to surround the Park.
Situated right in the center of Parkside is Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House, a true Buffalo treasure to say the least. Check out my dedicated blog post just on this building here. Several other prominent architects also have works within the neighborhood, such as W.S. Wicks, James Marling and Herbert Burdett.
Parkside was enlisted on the National and State Registers of Historic Places in 1987.
