Hampton Park Terrace Historic District is a planned residential subdivision on the northwest side of the peninsular city of Charleston. Hampton Park Terrace was laid out between 1911 and 1913, and by 1922 nearly 200 houses had been built. The cohesive architectural character of the neighborhood toady reflects not only the rapid pace of construction but also the cooperative development of the subdivision by a small group of investors and builders. Primary contributing resources include 218 dwellings and one park; there are also 64 contributing garages. Contributing resources were built between ca. 1910 and ca. 1945, with the great majority having been built between 1914 and 1922. Non-contributing properties were built after ca. 1945, or have lost their integrity of design and material through alterations and additions. Non-contributing resources in the district include 27 dwellings, 59 garages, one store and one church. A wide variety of house styles are located in the neighborhood, with variations on Prairie, Foursquare, Colonial Revival, Craftsman, and Bungalow styles. Listed in the National Register September 26, 1997.
