  • District NRHP nomination: “The 1920s saw the introduction to the district of significant buildings other than houses, most notably apartment buildings, two churches, and a synagogue. Reflecting the rapid growth of the city during the decade, the middle-class nature of much of the neighborhood, and the suburb’s location near downtown and many white collar jobs, more apartment buildings were built in Fisher Park than in any other neighborhood in the city.
  • “Generally three-story, brick, Colonial Revival style buildings, they were raised on or near North Elm street and Bessemer and Fisher avenues, the district’s three major thoroughfares. They include the Cannon Court Apartments at 828 North Elm Street and the Vance, Shirley, and Fairfax Apartments at the northeast corner of Magnolia Street.”
