Washington Street was the choicest, and one of the earliest, residential streets in Traverse City. Along it, grew a neighborhood of elegant Queen Anne Victorian-style homes. These exquisite homes remain largely unchanged by time and the modern world. Except perhaps for the mature tree-shaded streets, they remain an excellent example of the prosperous American small town that proudly existed at the turn of the century. [‡]
