North Seventh Street Historic District

-A A +A
1893–1929. 7th St. between Hill and Grand aves. (NRD)

A parkway whose grassy median sports antique acorn lampposts is lined with thirty-four homes that make up the county's best collection of historic dwellings. This part of the original city plat began to be developed with construction of the two-story frame Italianate Cyrus “Doc” Shores House ( ME08.1; 1890), 327 North 7th Street, built as the home of a locally famous lawman. Town founder George Crawford moved from his original downtown dwelling to the more elegant Queen Anne house (1890) next door, at 337 North 7th St.
