The East Richland Street-East Church Street Historic District is significant both for its association with the residential development of Kershaw from ca. 1890 to ca. 1940 and as a reflection of the diverse architectural styles and influences of that period. Representative styles include Victorian, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and Neo-Classical. By 1900 the town of Kershaw was well established and the streets were laid out in a grid pattern. The district contains 28 properties contributing to the character of the district. The majority of the resources date from ca. 1890 to ca. 1920, a particularly significant period of development in Kershaw. Each of the properties within this district is a residence, with the exception of one residence that was converted to a funeral home. The district includes portions of East Richland Street, East Church Street, Hart Street, Minor Street, and Ingram Street. Listed in the National Register January 4, 1990.
