Thomas and Electa Garrison bought land beyond the city limits in 1853. In 1882 this farmland was subdivided into five parcels to settle the Garrison estate. The first home was built in 1911 and by the late 1920's the long two blocks were regally adorned with stately homes of prominent professionals, entrepreneurs and industrialists. It was the city's second designated historic district and maintains high standards for restoration and neighborhood beautification.
