Tracing the original eastern city boundary and the Congressional Reservation Line once dividing white and Indian Territory, Sam Davis Avenue is named for a Confederate hero hanged by Federals on this hill in 1863. The Historical District, placed on the National Register in 1989, contains outstanding architecture of the 1860~1910 period.
