Forest Street Parkway

-A A +A
1913. From Montview Blvd. to E. 17th Ave. (NR)

Three blocks of landscaped parkway are lined by a variety of well-maintained homes ranging in size from cottages to mansions. The two-story brick house (1930, G. Charles Jaka) on the southeast corner of Forest and 18th Avenue, is notable for its plain composition, carved wooden window surrounds, and a concave masonry entry arc at the intersection of the perpendicular wings. The grandest residence, the Peter H. Holme House (1929, Burnham F. Hoyt), 1750 Forest Street Parkway, is a Tudor mansion with angled, balancing wings occupied since 1991 by architect Curt W. Fentress.
