Architectural Styles of Hyde Park

Because development in Hyde Park did not follow a continuous pattern, the district is a mixture of styles, sizes and ages. Nineteenth century building between 1879 and 1899 ranged through the southeast segment of the district from Plant Avenue, and Hyde Park Avenue to Newport Avenue and Morrison Avenue, and represented a variety of revival styles. The random pattern continued throughout the development of the district, which remained unified by continuity in landscape, street orientation, and site relationships.

The stylistic influences in Hyde Park range from revivals (Queen Anne, Tudor, Classical, Colonial, French Second Empire and Mediterranean) to new directions in architecture (Prairie and Bungalow). Along with these styles, popular throughout the country around the turn of the century, are vernacular examples which lack academic influences, and eclectic examples which exhibit a mixture of influences.

Some of the earlier buildings of the district may be described as vernacular. Typically two story wood frame, these residences are often distinguished by carpentry details such as decorative entryways, brackets and eaves.
