The Third Avenue Historic District could easily have been named “The Mansion District”, as it was home to some of the elite of the area. Many of the remaining homes there reflect that wealth.
While some 80 percent of the lakefront property in Kenosha is public land, the Third Avenue District and Allendale neighborhood to the south have long been the holdings of Kenosha’s upper class.

When the Civic Center was planned by nationally famous city planner Harland Bartholomew in 1922 as part of the 1925 Kenosha City Plan of 1925, it required the county and city to work cooperatively. The county and city swapped the parcels for the high school and the courthouse, enabling the high school to be built on the block across the street from the then current high school. (That building, called “The Annex” by two generations of high school students, was demolished in 1980.)
Part of the plan to create a civic center was to build a new post office. Clearly thinking out-of-the-box, Bartholomew advocated for the moving of the old post office to the building’s present site on the west side of Civic Center Park to complement the classical architecture of the other buildings in the center.
In 1836, just one year after the first white settlers came to what would someday become the city of Kenosha, two pioneers, New Englander Charles Durkee and Canadian George Kellogg acquired large neighboring tracts of land here.
By the time the first map of the village was drawn, Durkee and Kellogg had come to an agreement: each set aside adjoining plots to form a New England type of commons. The commons was an unimproved area, free from structures, where neighbors could graze cows and horses.
Pearl Street is Kenosha's smallest historic district.
