Iowa City neighborhood named a "Best Old-House Neighborhood"

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- One of Iowa City's neighborhoods has gained national recognition by being named one of This Old House magazine's "Best Old-House Neighborhoods".

The Longfellow neighborhood, which some consider one of Iowa City's most beloved and endearing neighborhoods, is one of 51 neighborhoods in the U.S. and Canada to receive the honor.

The list is made up of neighborhoods that the magazine says has promising futures, people that care and homes that truly deserve a long-term commitment.

Staff at the magazine are told to look for unique, tight-knit neighborhoods that meet the criteria of architectural diversity, craftsmanship of homes, a preservation momentum in the area, and neighborhood amenities that include walkability, safety, and community.

While Longfellow was not one of the six to be featured in the magazine, it does appear on the website, www.thisoldhouse.com with the other winners.
