[http://www.mcgi.state.mi.us/hso/sites/16836.htm Highland Heights - Stevens' Subdivision Historic District] from the state of Michigan] It has an unusually high concentration of high quality, middle class housing stock, built over a short period of time, with much of it still well-preserved.
The Highland Heights-Stevens' Subdivision Historic District is a neighborhood of primarily single-family detached homes. There are 422 single-family homes, two apartment buildings, five commercial buildings, and the
McGregor Librarylocated within the district. Of these, 392 single-family houses, both two apartment buildings, and the library are classified as contributing to the district's historic character.
The houses are fine representation of the variety of American residential architecture in the years 1900-1930. Styles represented include foursquares,
bungalows, and various revival styles. There are also 393 garages in the district, located along back alleys. Of these, 373 appear to have been constructed in the years of the area's initial development, and their presence and construction reflects the upwardly mobile, middle-class character of the neighborhood.
