The Virginia Park Historic District is located in Detroit, Michigan, along both sides of Virginia Park St. from Woodward Avenue to Lodge Freeway Service Drive.

History

In the latter part of the 19th century, the population of Detroit grew substantially, enough so that developers began looking north of Grand Boulevard for land to subdivide. [http://www.detroit1701.org/VirginiaPark_Hist.htm Virginia Park] from Detroit1701.org.] In 1893, Virginia Park was platted with 92 relatively small lots. requirements ensured that only well-to-do businessmen and professionals could afford to erect a home in the neighborhood. Most of the homes were built between 1893 and 1915. Architectural styles represented in the neighborhood include Tudor, Neo-Georgian, Bungalow and Arts and Crafts.
