Collins Conservation District Tour

Take a walk through time in the Collins Heritage Conservation District, where in the space of a few blocks you'll discover houses of the early and late 19th century.

The early houses tend to be modest but well-built. The later houses were built in an era of economic well-being and show very strong Victorian influence.

Those houses built around 1890 are, for the most part, Queen Anne Revival. The Willow to Clements portion of Collins Street was much like today's subdivision. With all the men who had these houses built being "sort-of" rivals on land or sea, there was a good deal of "one-upmanship" expressed in the grandeur and craftsmanship of the houses.

The citizens of Yarmouth are fortunate that these houses have suffered little at the hands of time, and that there have been people who were willing to take on the task of restoring them to their former glory. Here are some of the properties you can see in a walk through the district:
