Description 

"The Randall Park Historic District is a pleasing neighborhood of broad, tree-lined streets, large frame houses, and imposing church structures. Surveyed in long rectangular blocks with alleys, the district occupies a generally level stretch of land in Adin Randall's Village of Eau Claire City. At the heart of the district is Randall Park, a city block-size area containing the Adin Randall statue in a setting of trees, shrubs, and comfortable open spaces. Prom the park the district moves west and north to Fifth Avenue and Lake Street, respectively. Within these blocks are a total of seventy buildings of which fifteen are pivotal and fifty-three, contributing. The Adin Randall statue is also considered pivotal. The pivotal structures, including three church buildings, are often prominently sited at corner locations thus providing visual focal points for the district."
