About

Consisting of 476 acres, the Calhoun Street-Ives Road Historic District runs alongside Calhoun Street and Ives Road which are both characterized by their narrow stone walls as well as 19th-century frame farmhouses. These roads display the farming history and architecture styles of a rural community settled in the 18th-century using land purchased from the Native Americans and then early residents began to farm the area. The numerous farmhouses and outbuildings in this district still maintain their original conditions and are perfectly set in the preserved agricultural landscape.
