Cottage Grove Meadows

-A A +A
post-1945. North side of Cottage Grove between 32nd and 34th streets S.E.

This is a post-World War II suburban district that openly conjures up the Colonial image. One enters between Colonial gateposts with metal lanterns; within the complex are Colonial Revival houses loosely placed on gentle sloping lots. The meandering street pattern has been carefully laid out to reflect the gentle hilly terrain.
