Sylvan Terrace is a one-of-a-kind historic street that was built in 1882. The street is home to twenty 19th century wooden row houses. These houses were built a few years later; from 1890 to 1902. They were designed by James E. Ray. He was influenced by the Queen Anne, Romanesque, and Renaissance Revival movements originating from Europe. The Queen Anne style pays tribute to the reemergence of English Baroque architecture that swept England during Queen Anne’s mandate. The street’s design is also reminiscent of the Victorian era.
