Douglas Manor

Two different styles from two different eras, side by side.

Douglas Manor was created with strict deed rules, but unlike in communities like Forest Hills Gardens, there was no restriction on architectural style. As a result, many early-20th-century styles are represented in the Manor’s 600 homes -- Tudor Revival, Craftsman (including homes by Gustav Stickley), Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, Mediterranean Revival, English Country Cottage -- even Sears mail-order. There are also eight homes built by Josephine Wright Chapman, one of the most successful female architects of her time.
