The Travis Heights-Fairview Park Historic District project is a volunteer effort by neighbors within the proposed district in collaboration with a preservation consulting team. We are working to create a National Register Historic District for the area roughly bounded by Riverside Drive, Kenwood Avenue, Live Oak Street and the residential back-side of South Congress Avenue. The following map shows the proposed district boundaries, however, the boundaries are subject to change before we submit the designation application.
We’ve completed the survey of the area, concluding with approximately 1,200 properties with around 870 (72%) contributing to a potential local historic district. As a comparison, the Hyde Park local historic district effort surveyed about 670 properties and listed about 485 (also 72%) of them as contributing. Because time has passed since we completed the survey, we are updating it this summer. Please contact us if you would like to participate.
