Irwin Park Historic District.  UTM:  17 513568E 3899002N  The most intact and architecturally significant residential streetscape remaining in Center City Charlotte is the cluster of homes bordering the eastern edge of Irwin Ave. just south of Irwin Ave. Elementary School, formerly Harding High School.  Built in the 1910s and 1920s, the majority are predictably frame dwellings with large front porches ideally suited to warm Southern climates. Most people do not realize that the Center City contains vestiges of early twentieth century suburbanization.
