Historic Districts



Cole Town – Named for R.D. Cole Company, this historic district is an example of a residential neighborhood which developed around a major industry. Founded in 1854, the R.D. Cole Company produced a wide variety of architectural woodwork, trusses, industrial machinery, and water towers that are still known worldwide. The company’s woodwork distinguishes the district’s residential architecture. Also in the district is a representation of the experimental approach to concrete and reinforced concrete bridges in the early twentieth century.
