Stockton House
These blocks have suffered heavily from the decline of the neighborhood. A small scattering of houses survives among parking lots and light industrial buildings. Perhaps the most prominent is the Stockton House, a Romanesque home constructed in 1890 for a stove manufacturer.

The house was for many years by Frederick Medler, who used it as both residence and office space for his archtectural design practice, the Urban Design Forum. Exterior and interior restoration of the home a long and meticulous process. Medler also created a spectacular urban garden around the house, a green oasis in a neighborhood hit hard by asphalt and parking lots.
