In 1909 Hill Avenue, now Hill Drive, was (and still is) one of Eagle Rock’s most beautiful streets. Other streets were Roy Drive (now Mt. Royal Dr.), Acacia Street (now Laverna Ave.), Kenilworth Avenue (now Hermosa Ave.), Highland Avenue (now Highland View Ave.), and Fairmont Avenue (now Maywood Ave.). These streets were dotted with large and expensive Eagle Rock Real Estate on wide lots.
Other notable structures had come into being in the early part of the century, such as the Craftsman-style Women’s 20th Century Club, the Eagle Rock Carnegie Library, various lovely churches, and much attractive brick and commercial buildings along the main boulevards.
Later decades brought other architectural styles to Eagle Rock Real Estate and commercial structures, like streamline modern, International, post-war traditional, and mid-century modern. In the 1950s, newer streets such as Kincheloe Drive were extended into the hillsides for the building of larger homes with a view of the city. Today these streets are dotted with large and expensive homes on wide lots. The neighborhood is home to many historic and architecturally significant homes, many done in the Craftsman, Georgian, Streamline Moderne, Art Deco and Mission Revival styles. The neighborhood even has its original City Hall on Colorado Boulevard!
It is this eclectic mix of architectural character among Eagle Rock Real Estate through its large and small homes that has made Eagle Rock a unique neighborhood while evoking the qualities of small-town America.
