Cedar Bough Place Historic District

The Cedar Bough Place Historic District encompasses the homes along Cedar Bough Place, a short private street that runs between Ekin Avenue and Beeler Street. The neighborhood was developed during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when it was considered one of the city's most prestigious addresses. The condensed period of development, the short length of the street, and the similar size and scale of the homes all contribute to the character of Cedar Bough Place. Only one lot on the street is vacant, and there are no modern intrusions. The neighborhood was designated a local historic district in 2002 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.  Information on individual properties from National Register nomination - prepared by Teresa Douglass, Thomason and Associates - and from research by Floyd County Historian Dave Barksdale.
