ARCH has received notification that ARCH’s nomination of the Wildwood Park neighborhood to the National Register of Historic Places has resulted in that neighborhood’s official listing in the National Register of Historic Places as of September 18, 2013.

Roughly bound by Ardmore Avenue, Jefferson Boulevard, Portage Boulevard and Freeman Street, Wildwood Park was designed by nationally prominent landscape architect Arthur Shurcliff. Developed by the Wildwood Company, the team of Lee and his pioneering architect wife Joel Roberts Ninde, the neighborhood features a rolling topography, winding streets and a mix of early twentieth-century architectural styles. The area is significant in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Community Planning.
