Developed in the late 19th Century and featuring a significant collection of Queen Anne, Bungalow, Craftsman, Four-Square, and Neo-Classical homes, Hampton Heights is the City’s oldest neighborhood. It originally was a popular neighborhood for professionals and civic leaders, and families enjoyed time outdoors along its tree-lined streets.
The entire Hampton Heights Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. And after a period of neglect and decline in the mid-to-late 20th Century, Hampton Heights has made a remarkable comeback. Families have returned as dozens of historic renovation projects have restored the neighborhood to its former grandeur.
Today, Hampton Heights is an attractive and diverse neighborhood. Its residents have formed a tight-knit and proud community. Neighbors enjoy sidewalk strolls and front porch visits. They also value the proximity to downtown. At evening events on Morgan Square or at The Showroom and other venues, you’re sure to see Hampton Heights well represented, often by people who walked just a few blocks from their historic neighborhood to enjoy all that downtown has to offer.
