The Glebewood Village Historic District is made up of around 100 buildings, mostly constructed in the late 1930s. The national historic district includes seven blocks of rowhouses. Each of those seven blocks contains up to 30 or so single rowhouses, mostly in a Colonial Revival style of architecture.
The two-story rowhouses were made of brick and have an asymmetrical roof. It’s also possible to find a renovated Cape Cod in the neighborhood, which has likely been updated with some of the latest and most modern features and finishes.
