A visually distinct grouping of large, high style houses
"The West Prospect Avenue Historic District is set on the top of a bluff, with a commanding view of the Fox River valley. In contrast to the houses in the district, the residences to the north, east and west of the district are smaller in scale, more modest in architectural character and generally have suffered much greater alteration.
"The district is made up primarily of large, high style, singlefamily residences on large lots. Three of the eight contributing buildings were erected prior to 1900, four were constructed between 1901 and 1911, and one was built in 1927. l The GoffKaminsky House was remodeled 1942. The West Prospect Avenue Historic District retains a high degree of historic integrity in setting, materials, feeling, association, and design. One hundred percent of the resources in the district are contributing."
