Country Club Historic District is an irregularly shaped neighborhood located south of the revitalized Benson business district.
Most homes in the area were built in the mid 1920’s through the early 1940’s and have elements reflecting the Tudor style—brick and stucco construction, multiple gables, pointed arches, and leaded glass diamond patterned windows. Today’s homes are typically valued between $150,000 and $300,000 with price dependent on size and location of the development. Many are built on curvilinear streets with mature trees, wide setbacks and decorative street lights while others are a continuation of the city’s grid. Because of its unique architecture, it has been added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
With its beautiful homes at many price points and an active Community Council, the area attracts families wanting to live in a vibrant area where neighbors are truly neighborly. For example, the Council sponsors a well attended Easter Egg Hunt and organizes Luminaries Night, an evening during the Christmas holiday season when families light their sidewalks, driveways and walkways with collectively thousands of luminaries. The Council also acts as a link with government entities to keep residents informed of proposals and issues affecting the area.
