ARTIFACT: National Register of Historic Places DESIGNATION MAP

Above, the official map from the National Register of Historic Places delineating the borders of the Tudor City Historic District. The designation was made on September 11, 1986.

WHAT'S IN: all the buildings constructed by Fred F. French from 1925-1930, a church dating from 1871, four 1870s rowhouses [holdouts that refused to sell to French], and a 1926 apartment building.

WHAT'S OUT: the two children's playgrounds adjacent to the parks, and No. 2, Tudor Gardens, 30 years old at the time of designation. Generally, properties must be at least 50 years old to be included in the National Register.
