History: The 18 city blocks of Idlewild Historic District contain numerous types of residences from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. An irregular street pattern, the natural topography, and alignment of Lick Creek all contribute to the shapes and patterns of individual lots within the district. This district, in its wide variety of house types, architectural styles and construction materials, demonstrates the evolution of the area from a simple streetcar suburb to an urban automobile suburb.
