The East Park Historic District is historically significant as an early twentieth century planned suburban community, offering a park-centered lifestyle a few short blocks from downtown Greenville. The houses, institutions and park built in the East Park neighborhood between 1908 and 1950 are an excellent showcase of how middle and upper classes responded to changes in architectural styles, transportation, social and political issues, increasing population, economic ups and downs, and commercial encroachment during the first half of the twentieth century. The district includes 121 contributing buildings, 22 non-contributing buildings, 1 contributing site (City Park/McPherson Park), and 3 contributing structures. Among the homes, Tudor Revival, Colonial Revival, Neo-Classical and late Victorian styles are most notable. Most are two-story residences and exhibit decorative features such as cross gable roofs, knee braces, gable dormers, grouped lattice casement windows, prominent chimneys and gracious front porches. American Foursquare, Craftsman Bungalows, Prairie, and catalogue houses complete the varied styles in the neighborhood. Listed in the National Register October 4, 2005.
