AAA Editor Notes
De Tonti Square Historic District, 5 blks. n. of the central business area, is characterized by dignified brick townhouses, iron-lace fences, antique gaslights and flagstone sidewalks. Many of these residences, built in the 1850s and '60s, reflect the city's prosperity as a cotton-shipping port. Federal, Greek Revival, Gulf Coast Cottage, Italianate, Neoclassical and Victorian architectural styles are featured. The Richards DAR House is located here at 256 N. Joachim St.
