Designated in 1981, Lake Cherokee Historic District contains approximately 160 historic structures, primarily residences dating back to 1870’s. General boundaries are East-West Expressway on the north, Orange Avenue on the west, Cherokee Drive and Gore Street on the south and Summerlin Avenue on the east. This area is primarily residential. Building activity began in the 1870′s when the Lake was known as Lake Minnie. Residences were constructed in the Craftsman style, like those at Hovey’s Court as well as Queen Anne & Mediterranean, Tudor and Colonial Revivals. The eclectic Shingle/Neoclassical style Peleg Peckham-Dr. Phillips House (1893) on North Lucerne Circle East is representative of early architecture of the City.
