AAA Editor Notes

Old Dauphin Way Historic District, which lies w. of downtown, roughly between Broad St., Houston St., US 98 (Springhill Ave.) and Government St., includes nearly 3,000 buildings ranging from early cottages to 19th- and 20th-century mansions. Many of the Gulf Coast cottages and Victorian-style structures housed middle-class merchants and clerks. The smaller cottages were the homes of servants who worked in the grand houses along Government Street or on the docks. There are numerous bungalows of various sizes and a variety of revival styles scattered through the neighborhood.
