This nomination consists of an inner city residential subdivision filled with houses from the late nineteenth century and turn of the century periods. These houses are largely single-family dwellings and are principally of wood frame construction. They are interspersed with the occasional apartment building, neighborhood commercial building and are all clustered west and north of the Jones Home for Children. This facility is centered about a massive Colonial Revival style brick building capped by a spire-like cupola. All of these properties are set along tree-lined streets in a neighborhood three miles southwest of downtown Cleveland.

Statement of Significance Summary Paragraph (Provide a summary paragraph that includes level of significance and applicable criteria.)

The Jones Home Subdivisions Historic District is defined by its distinctive street pattern of relatively wide streets, spacious lots and rear lot line alleys that combined with the Jones Home for Children and its spacious park-like setting to stimulate the development of a turn of the century middle class neighborhood that survives largely intact today. The properties contained within this nomination possesses architectural significance under Criterion C as a microcosm of well-preserved examples of American architectural styles during its period of significance, from 1872, when the area was first subdivided, through World War I, when the area was completely developed. The historic resources of the district are diverse, ranging from large-scale turn-of-the-century residences to smaller vernacular working class housing to churches. The neighborhood is focused around four streets, which contain some of near west Cleveland's best preserved housing stock. The streets here compare favorably from an architectural standpoint with such Cleveland streets as Archwood Avenue, Franklin Boulevard, Jennings Avenue (West 14th Street) and Bolton (East 89th), all of which have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These streets are significant for their concentrations of turn of the century middle class to upper middle class housing stock that survive with a high degree of integrity in settings that accentuate their architecture through relatively spacious lot sizes and historic landscaping. The significance of this neighborhood lies in its overall ambiance, with an occasional individual landmark such as the Jones Home. The area is an oasis of sorts of larger and better preserved housing stock in the midst of a late nineteenth century working class neighborhood of smaller and less imposing houses. It is cut off from a similar concentration of historic houses to the south, being nominated as the Brooklyn Centre Historic District, by Interstate 71.

from Daisy, by the rear lot lines of the properties on the east side of Fulton Road.
Boundary Justification (Explain why the boundaries were selected.)

These lands include the tracts of land that comprised the historic Jones Farm, as subdivided by Carlos Jones, the founder of Jones Home for Children. It is a tightly-knit residential community, differing from adjoining residential areas because of its larger lot sizes, more spacious streets and generally larger and better preserved housing stock. The neighborhood is geographically confined to the east and west by two major commercial streets, West 25th and Fulton Road. To the south is Interstate 71, separated from the district by Daisy Avenue, a narrower street lined with smaller and less imposing houses. North is Trowbridge Avenue, a street intersected by many side streets and also having smaller lot sizes and less imposing houses.
