Welcome to the North Anthony Area Neighborhood

Welcome to the North Anthony Area Neighborhood Association's Web site.  The North Anthony Area Association includes several areas developed over the last 100 years by several prominent citizens and suburban community planners.

History of the North Anthony Area Neighborhood

The trend for beautiful boulevards and "planned" subdivisions began in Fort Wayne during the early 1900's.  The movement gained strength when, in 1911, nationally prominent landscape architect George E. Kessler, of Kansas City, MO, proposed a framework for new residental areas in Fort Wayne.  North Anthony and State Boulevard are part of this historic system, which recently has been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.

Kensington Park, located between State Boulevard and Lake Avenue, was platted in 1917 by developer W.E. Doud and includes Kensington Boulevard, a long, landscaped street marked by pillars or gateposts in the Prairie style.  South Kensington (south of Lake Ave), created in 1921, features Tudor pillars.  Both areas contain houses primarily in the Tudor Revival, Colonial Revival, Prairie, and Craftsman styles.  Pemberton Drive, on the other hand was developed by a rival company and the plan was called "Plymouth Colony".  House designs were named after such pioneers as Priscilla Mullins and Miles Standish and were primarily Colonial Revival styles.

These early automobile suburbs feature wooded lots, pleasant views, sidewalks with ornamental street lights, and areas of park land that include the center park strips of Kensington, the triangular park islands in the area north of State Boulevard, and the wide right of way areas between curb and sidewalk along Pemberton, Randallia, and North Anthony.  Architictural syles in the area include Colonial and Tudor Revival, French Eclectic, Prairie, Cape Cod, Craftsman, and American Foursquare, along with several older Victorian-era homes that preceded the surburban development of the area.
