Originally called Kenesaw Terrace, this street contains one of the city's best collections of Prairie school residences, many of which were designed by noted architect George W. Maher. The district's mix of Prairie-style designs and more traditional historical styles, such as NeoClassical, Queen Anne, and Richardsonian Romanesque, provides a unique perspective on the changes that took place in residential architecture between 1890 and 1920.
