The Longfellow Neighborhood was nationally recognized by This Old House magazine in its March issue for being one of this year’s “Best Old-House Neighborhoods.”

According to Scott Omelianuk, the editor of This Old House, the goal of the contest was to recognize cities, towns, or individual neighborhoods that have beautiful architecture or historic houses that especially appeal to old-house-loving buyers.

Iowa City’s Longfellow Neighborhood was one of 51 areas recognized nationwide.

In addition to the appearance of the neighborhood, other standards that played a role in the selection include neighborhood attitude, camaraderie, and proximity to businesses and recreational services.

The Longfellow Neighborhood in Iowa City is located around Longfellow Elementary and includes the historic districts of Summit Street and Longfellow.
