View nearly 200 nineteenth century homes representing a variety of architectural styles prominent between 1870 and 1910 including Queen Anne, Italianate, Colonial Revival, Prairie, and Second Renaissance Revival. This National Register Historic District also includes five exceptional carriage houses on Dayton Street and a unique livery stable at 720 Campbell Avenue.
Dayton Street features the mansions of prominent industrialists of that time. Campbell Avenue features a tree-lined boulevard originally used as a racetrack by daring young equestrians that later became the favorite meeting place for young people during the bicycle craze of 1890. The Dayton-Campbell Historic District continues to be the center of neighborhood and visitor activities including summer concerts in the park, craft shows, park fest, community cookouts, and the biannual tour of homes. A free walking tour guide is available.
