Hampton Heights Historic District

History

The Hampton Heights Historic District is a significant collection of 375 residences in a neighborhood that retains historic and architectural integrity from the early 20th century. The district, which developed between 1890 and 1930, was the home of numerous middle- and upper-class citizens of Spartanburg. The district is a cohesive and intact collection of early 20th century houses, representative of the prevalent urban and suburban house types of the era, and of the nature of suburban development in a growing city.

Predominant architectural styles and modes include Queen Anne, Bungalow, Craftsman, Four-Square, and Neo-Classical. The buildings in the district are primarily single-family frame residences, which vary in scale. Large residences boast well-matured grounds, outbuildings, and deep setbacks. Smaller and later houses were built with small, uniform setbacks, narrow lots, and uniform orientation and scale, expressive of the consistent development of the area as an inner-city residential area in the 1910-1930 period. The district was listed in the National Register on January 27, 1983.
