Long description

The Northeast Historic District was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The district is significant for the concentration and evolution of an early residential neighborhood. The 290 historic buildings reflect the architectural styles prevalent in Florida during the 1880?s through the 1920?s and the public green spaces depict the development of Gainesville between these years. The walk also goes through the Southeast Historic District which contains a large number of historic buildings from the same period.
