Designated January 10, 2006

Fieldston is made up of approximately 257 houses and related structures. Albert Wheeler, an engineer, is responsible for the layout Fieldston. Wheeler’s plan, finalized in 1914, was based on recommendations made by Frederick Law Olmsted and James R. Croes who had surveyed the area in 1876.

The neighborhood incorporated the natural topography of winding roads, and wooded knolls instead of plowing through them. The neighborhood was developed mainly in the first half of the 20th century, in a variety of architectural styles including the Medieval, English Tudor, Mediterranean, Dutch, and Georgian Colonial, as well as formal modernist houses.

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
