Historic Preservation Zoning District

Germantown is one of the most architecturally heterogeneous neighborhoods in the city. The eight-block area contains a wide variety of styles and types of residences built between the 1840s and 1920s.

The traditional Germantown neighborhood boundaries have been Eighth Avenue North on the west, Hume Street on the North, Third Avenue North on the east and Jefferson Street on the south. That area, plus the 1400 block of Second Avenue North, makes up the Germantown Historic Preservation Zoning district.
