Date Listed: 12/29/2003

Description: The Radnor-Winston Historic District is an early-20th century residential neighborhood located in north Baltimore, a short distance inside the city line. The district is located approximately a half block west of the York Road corridor, a major north-south artery now characterized by mid-20th century commercial development. The campus of the College of Notre Dame forms most of its western boundary. The district's location is insular, in that there are no through streets, and the short streets within the neighborhood are organized in an intricate one-way pattern that further limits traffic. Although several late-19th century houses within the district represent the area's prior history, most of the 223 buildings within the district are bungalows and American Foursquares, and a few reflecting Dutch Colonial influence, constructed between c. 1900 and 1927, when Radnor-Winston was actively developed as a residential suburb. Houses in the district are primarily of frame construction, uniformly set back from the streets on modest-sized lots. Many of the houses have associated garages. The district is characterized by an unusual degree of cohesiveness and has retained integrity. That the neighborhood was created by a few builder/developers who offered a limited range of designs accounts in large part for the district's architectural cohesiveness. Significance: The Radnor-Winston Historic District is significant for its association with the suburban development of Baltimore, and as an example of a type of residential subdivision which characterized the area in the early 20th century. Radnor-Winston is distinctive among the subdivisions of north Baltimore for its consistent architectural character. While several buildings survive to reflect the area's history through the last quarter of the 19th century, the majority of houses in Radnor-Winston are frame bungalows or American Foursquares reflecting the period c. 1910 to 1927, by which date the development of the community was essentially completed. These houses are uniformly set back from the streets on modest-sized lots and retain integrity of design, form, and massing. The district conveys a sense of time and place through its architecture, and the rhythm of its streetscapes, setbacks, and landscaping.
