The College Park Historic District (also known as College Park Residential Neighborhood) is a U.S. historic district (designated as such on February 9, 2001) located in Lake Worth, Florida. The district is bounded by Maryland Drive, North Federal Highway, 19th Avenue North, and North Dixie Highway. It contains 90 historic buildings and residences. Unique to “College Park” is the naming of each street after prominent American colleges or universities instead of numbers or letters. Several of the older homes within College Park were built during the Florida Land Boom that ended with the 1928 hurricane and the national economic depression. Several of these homes are notable for their Mediterranean Revival and Mission Style architecture. A second building boom occurred in the 1940’s after World War II which included many single story, slab on grade masonry houses. These homes are characterized by their Masonry Vernacular, International and Ranch architectural styles.
The historic neighborhood of College Park boasts a variety of condos, ranch-style homes and two-story homes ranging in size from 954 to 4,128 square feet. Many homes within the community are cinder block construction, though there are also other frames with stucco and barrel roofs. Despite being a bit older, most of the homes within the College Park community have recently undergone upgrades and renovations.
