The properties of the Reid Street-North Confederate Avenue Area Historic District provide evidence of the changing architectural styles and tastes that existed in Rock Hill. The residential properties in the district date from ca. 1839, a period predating the founding of Rock Hill, to ca. 1935. The district also provides evidence of the broad patterns of growth and development that were occurring in Rock Hill. The district encompasses an area that was one of the first neighborhoods surrounding downtown. It developed during the period of rapid growth brought about by the creation of the textile industry. Many of the neighborhood’s residents were middle class businessmen or professionals who worked in the nearby downtown. The earliest houses in the neighborhood were in the Late Victorian and Queen Anne styles. Later houses were built with largely Classical Revival influences, and a few in the Craftsman/Bungalow style. There are 23 contributing properties and 9 noncontributing properties in the district. Listed in the National Register June 10, 1992. - SCDAH
