Property History
The Grand Boulevard Historic District is Greenwood's largest and most architecturally significant residential neighborhood and reflects the prosperity of the city as it became the Center of Mississippi's second cotton kingdom. The significance of the neighborhood is based on the overall high quality of the District's architecture on the architectural integrity of its buildings, on its beautifully landscaped setting which is dominated by a wide boulevard shaded by massive oak trees, and on the number of individually significant residences within its boundaries. Located on the northern side of the Yazoo River, across the river from the Cotton Row Historic District, the Boulevard Subdivision stretches northerly to the Tallahatchie River which forms its northern boundary. Beyond the Tallahatchie are the cotton fields of the Delta plantations. The neighborhood was a planned residential subdivision developed by Captain and Mrs. Samuel L. Gwin , who purchased the land in the late 1890's. Mrs. Gwin was responsible for the avenues of oak trees that today provide abundant shade for the Grand Boulevard and most of its cross streets. Within the district boundaries are Greenwood's finest examples of Spanish Eclectic, Tudor, and Prairie Style residences, as well as some of the city's finest examples of Neo-Classical Revival and Colonial Revival. Throughout the district, especially on the Cross Streets, are good representative examples of Bungalow, Spanish Eclectic, and Tudor cottages. Architects H. M. White and George Mahon designed at least two of the residences in the Boulevard Subdivision, and local architect Frank R. McGeoy is documented as having designed 810 Grand Boulevard, Both White and Mahon were from Tennessee and McGeoy came to Greenwood from Tennessee. The reliance upon Tennessee architects testifies to the close ties of the Mississippi Delta region to Memphis, considered the northernmost city of the rich Delta plantation land.Significance of the District dates from the late 1890's, when the land for the Boulevard Subdivision was purchased, through the cotton boom era until the beginning of World War II. The expansion of Greenwood's cotton economy which began with the development of the federal levee system at the end of the Civil War, continued until the Great Depression signaled a decline that was immediately reinforced by World War II and the mid-twentieth century synthetic fabric boom.† Mary Warren Miller, research consultant, Historic Natchez Foundation, Grand Boulevard Historic District, Leflore County, MS, nomination document, 1985, National Park Service, National Register of Historic Places, Washington, D.C.
