Foster Park Neighborhood listed on National Register

The Foster Park Neighborhood has been named to the National Register of Historic Places, the city of Fort Wayne said today.

The neighborhood is the fifth neighborhood or property to receive the designation this year, the city said in a statement.

The register is the country's official list of properties considered worthy of preservation. The nomination called the neighborhood an excellent example of suburban subdivision design during the early 20th century, with a variety of architectural styles popular from the 1920s to 1950s.

Others listed this year are the Lafayette Place Neighborhood; the Ninde-Mead-Farnsworth House, 734 E. State Blvd.; the John H. and Mary Abercrombie House, 3130 Parnell Ave.; and the Wildwood Park Neighborhood.
