History Engaged: E. French Place

We just love UrbanLiving Inside410 and as you know, we periodically take a look at Historic Districts inside loop 410. This week we are taking a look at one of the newest historic districts according to the San Antonio Office Of Historic Preservation known as E. French Place.

Because it is such a newer historic district, there is not a lot of information but I have researched it high an low and here is what I have been able to come up with:

The boundaries of this new district run from US Hwy 281 to the west to N. St. Mary's Street. Within these boundaries are 33 properties which was subdivided in 1922. All of these charming Craftsman bungalows were built by H. C. Thorman and feature clipped gables and large porches with battered columns.

These styles of architectural can be even further segmented into the following categories: Craftsman, Folk Victorian, Tudor Revival and Vernacular Shotgun. Great vintage properties throughout the area!

The E French Place Historic District was designated by City Council in 2017 and is San Antonio's newest historic district. This block of E French Pl was developed in 1922 by San Antonio developer H. C. Thorman and is characterized by its collection of Craftsman Bungalows.

As you know, we are obsessed with the lifestyle associated with Inside410. The vibe is urban and cool and each year is just getting better and better.
