Ard Eevin Highlands Historic District
The Ard Eevin Highlands Historic District includes 87 homes in the Cumberland Heights neighborhood, almost all of which were built between the 1920s and 1940s. A portion of the proposed district lies on land developed by Dan and Arthur Campbell, brothers who were early associates of Leslie Brand. Two Campbell family homes from the turn of the 20th century are included within the boundary proposed for this district. Most of the development that led to the neighborhood we know today occurred only after the brothers, along with other local property owners, began to subdivide their extensive land holdings in the 1920s.
In general, the homes in this area reflect the Period Revival styles that dominated residential design during the 1920s and 1930s. Excellent examples of the Spanish Colonial, Monterey, Colonial, and Tudor Revival styles are found throughout the area, along with a number of homes featuring later, but complementary, Minimal Traditional and Ranch styles. In addition, most homes are visually linked by their similar setbacks from the street, scale, and massing, creating a cohesive feeling the helps define the neighborhood's historic character.
