Chronologically Washington, Graham St. and the nearby blocks especially illuminate four notable periods of residential building and the architectural styles prominent in those times. The riverboat prosperity days prior to the Civil War are represented by several majestic homes on Washington St, with Greek Revival as the prevailing style. The “turn of the century years” (1888-1920), following the arrival of the railroads, are represented by a number of stylish homes reflecting Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and Classical Revival themes. The “oil boom” years are especially well represented in Craftsman, Italian Renaissance, Tudor Revival, and Mission Revival styles. And the Minimal Traditional and Ranch styles of the World War II and post-war period show up in occasional infill constructions on the relatively few remaining vacant spaces alongside older homes.
