West Park Street is three blocks in length but only two blocks of it comprise the historic district.
Park Street is 80 feet wide and appears as a bouleard without being a boulevard. Mature trees separate the sidewalks from the street. All the homes are set back on large, flat lots. The houses are all one and a half or two stories houses and it appears that the older the house, the larger its size.
The house at 402 was once a hospital and the house 311 was the Masonic Temple for several years. Both are private residences again.
A triangular shape park acts as a buffer between Central Avenue and the historic district. It is called Veteran's Memorial Park and includes a retired helicopter, placed by American Legion Post 54.
