SUMMARY
North Main Street Bungalow Historic District
North Main Street generally bounded by Nevada Avenue and Huron Avenue, Oshkosh, Winnebago County
Dates of construction of contributing buildings: 1908-1930

Most of the houses in the North Main Street Bungalow Historic District were constructed during the first three decades of the twentieth century. Unlike other neighborhoods in the city that were developed and filled-in over time, this two block section along Main Street was constructed in a relatively short period. As a result, small bungalows are the most common house form.

The neighborhood, situated on the city’s north side, was home to a wide range of residents, including local carpenters and contractors, railroad employees, machinists, furniture salesmen, and businessmen from the city’s manufacturing companies.

The homes in the district are private residences. Please respect the rights and privacy of the residents.
