Old West Side Community Guide – Ann Arbor Real Estate
Ann Arbor’s Old West Side is an historic neighborhood whose architecture, streetscape, history, and environment are especially characteristic of Midwestern America in the 1800s. This neighborhood is bound by West Huron Street on the north, South Main St on the east, Pauline on the south and Crest and South 7th St on the west (see map below).
In 1972, the district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and recognized for its essential character as a unique community of homes. In order to maintain the look and feel of the Old West Side, the district is protected by city ordinances and a nonprofit preservation group, The Old West Side Association.
The Old West Side is host to more than beautiful homes, but iconic Ann Arbor businesses as well. In the northeast, downtown Ann Arbor creeps in with award wining restaurants such as Frita Batidos and famous concert halls The Ark and The Blind Pig. The Old West side is also home to two Ann Arbor parks: Wurster Park & Waterworks Park.
