The Lindley Place Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
The district consists of a dense, very cohesive grouping of late 19th and early 20th Century vernacular houses that line both sides of Lindley Place, an isolated, two block-long street that has no cross streets. A small group of bungalows on Olive Street at the head of Lindley Place serve to terminate the district. A few of the oldest and best preserved houses in the city are located within this district. Lindley Place is especially notable for its small scale, its high density, and its high degree of overall architectural integrity.
