The Gaffney Residential Historic District contains 111 contributing resources in an 18 block area. Although some infill construction has taken place in the past 50 years, the majority of the resources were built between ca. 1890 and ca.1930. Most of these resources are houses sited on large urban lots and oriented towards wide, tree-lined streets. Homes are generally of frame or brick construction with fine examples of the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Neo-Classical, Victorian and Bungalow styles as well as traditional vernacular forms. The majority of the buildings have been well maintained and the district basically retains its early twentieth century character. The residential historic district is the largest concentration of historic residential architecture remaining in Gaffney. Included in the district are homes of textile mill executives, merchants, and other professionals who lived in Gaffney during its boom period at the turn of the century. Listed in the National Register March 27, 1986.
