Originally named Parkmoor Place by builder, L. E. Fite, the Fulton Avenue Historic District encompasses the residences within the 1300 through the 1500 blocks of Fulton Avenue. The district represents a unique collection of Spanish Eclectic style houses constructed between 1927 and 1929. The Spanish Eclectic style developed in California in the early 20th century and experienced great popularity throughout the 1920s on a national scale, but particularly in the Southwest United States and Florida. Fulton Avenue and the surrounding neighborhood attracted an affluent group of purchasers including professionals and wealthy landowners. Development ceased during the depression, and the style was not revived in the post-depression era.
