This charming residential district of some 270 homes was built as Highland Park expanded. Many of the houses are among the state's finest examples of the small Craftsman bungalow, inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. Others are fine examples of period revivals. Generally, in a pattern found throughout Highland Park, the larger, more expensive houses are closer to Woodward Avenue. Notable examples include architect Henry Kohner's own bungalow (1919) at 179 Eason Street; the Fremont Barrett House (1915) at 55 Puritan Street, an excellent example of the Craftsman style; and Leonard B. Willeke's own house and architectural studio (1920) at 39 Moss Street.
