Architectural Styles

The South University Historic District contains a variety of
architectural styles. A few pre-1907 houses still stand, including Italianate
and Gothic Vernacular homes. The first homes built in the Gross Addition
(platted in 1907) were typically Bungalow and Craftsman styles.

As development continued, particularly during the booming 1920s, a large number of period revival style homes were built. These revival styles included: Tudor, Mission, Colonial (including a Dutch Colonial variant), English Cottage, Norman Farmhouse, Mediterranean and Pueblo.

Growth slowed during the depression years and picked up in the post-war years of the 1940s. Houses built during that period include World War II Era Cottages, Ranch homes, and Minimal Traditional style homes.
