This historic area was once known as "Millionaire's Row" because of the mansions lined the streets and the wealthy residents that lived in them. Many of those homes from the mid to late 1800s still stand - Mallory Neely House, Woodruff Fontaine House, James Lee House and Mollie Fontaine to name a few - and have been repurposed into museums, a bed and breakfast and one of the city's hottest night spots. New homes are being built in this neighborhood in styles reminiscent of the Victorian era.
