Meridian Street
Historic District


The North Meridian Street Historic District (area recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, 1986) consists of the properties located along the east and west sides of North Meridian Street between 40th Street and Westfield Boulevard. Prior to 1971, it looked as though commercialism would destroy the beautiful residential street and area. However, the people of the area came together to control the destiny of the neighborhood.

Living in the Historic District


If you are a homeowner in the North Meridian Street Historic District (primary preservation area) you have many reasons to be proud of your home. Nearly 70 percent of the homes along Meridian Street were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s, with the oldest home being built around 1908 and the newest in 2011. Before beginning any project which will change the grounds or the exterior of your home, you must gain approval for the changes from the Meridian Street Preservation Commission.
