A residential neighborhood in Fort Wayne is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Harrison Hill Historic District is located in south central Fort Wayne and holds more than 200 properties.
The city of Fort Wayne says most homes in the district were built between 1915 and 1940 with a variety of architectural styles, including Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, American Four Square and Craftsman Bungalow.
“It’s important to recognize the unique history, and architecture of our All-American City, Fort Wayne. National Register of Historic Places listings such as this bring recognition to the heritage of the Harrison Hill Neighborhood, and also to our entire community,” said Mayor Tom Henry.
The Harrison Hill Neighborhood Association worked with the Fort Wayne Historic Preservation Commission and the State Historic Preservation office to nominate the neighborhood. The association says the project was partially funded by a U.S Department of the Interior grant.
