Richardson Street and Surrounding Areas
The late 19th and early 20th century homes on and around Richardson Street are sufficiently set apart so residents feel a sense of having lots of room. The tall trees surrounding them help make this rural area a calming place, while also being close to shopping and restaurants to the west along State Road.
