It is also significant for its concentration of early 20th century buildings that embody the distinctive characteristics of a rural historic downtown. The district encompasses significant historic resources dating from 1896-1950s, which include the Settlement, Railroad, New Deal, WWII, and Post War/Expansion eras. The concentration of commercial structures illustrate the growth of the city, its role as the county seat of Lake County, and its association with agricultural, mining and timber industries...
