These homes are great examples of architecture from 100 years ago. The lumber industry made many of the original owners millionaires of the times.

This long tree-lined street boasts many beautiful Victorian period houses of various designs. The houses are close together and make for a lovely drive, with churches and parks mixed in with the houses.

Only seek this experience out if you are from a VERY small town. Many other cities have much more impressive old former rich housing. OK for a walk if you need exercise.

I would recommend walking it because we found it difficult in the car because there was always someone behind us so we had to travel through several times. It is about 5 blocks or so.
