Downtown Historic District

The downtown historic district contains a significant collection of commercial buildings, dating from the first half of the 1800s to about 1950, as well as residential, religious, and other building types. The contributing buildings represent a wide range of architectural styles, including Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, Renaissance Revival, Beaux Arts, Neoclassical and Chicago Commercial. Generally, the oldest buildings are located on Main Street, which is significant for its high concentration of Federal and Greek Revival style buildings. As the city grew and prospered, many Italiante structures were constructed on State, Pearl and Market streets. The district was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. Information on individual properties from Downtown walking tour brochure and from other research by Floyd County Historian Dave Barksdale, and from National Register of Historic Places nomination, prepared by the Westerly Group.
