Extending across the crest of Red Mountain, is the state's second oldest garden-landscaped residential area. Developed from 1911 to 1935 by Robert Jemison, Jr., Hill Ferguson, and Henry Key Milner using landscape architects C. W. Leavitt of New York City, George H. Miller of Boston, Birmingham landscape architect William H. Kessler and engineer John Glander, the area contains Alabama's finest collection of residential architecture of that era and includes the state's best examples of the domestic use of Tudor, Spanish Revival, Classical Revival, English Cottage, Dutch Revival, Chateauesque, and Renaissance Revival.
