History: The Third Addition to Jackson Terrace Historic District was nominated to the National Register “for its associations with the post World War II housing boom . . . The entrepreneurial spirit of the Margolin Brothers [builders Ben, Sam and Joe] exemplifies the expectations Americans held for an expansive post-war economy.” The first two phases of Jackson Terrace were developed as duplexes, but the remaining undeveloped property was sold to the Margolin brothers who developed it with rental duplexes. There has been deterioration over the years, but many homes were saved from demolition and were renovated beginning in 2002 after the district received National Register listing.
