After the dedication of Victory Memorial Drive in 1921, the 1920's and 1930's saw a great deal of growth in the Victory neighborhood as tradesmen and middle managers of many local manufacturers moved into the area for its convenience and proximity to their employer, as well as for the ease at which they would be able to access the downtown area via the electric streetcars that ran down Penn and Thomas Avenues. Many of the neighborhood homes were built at this time; typically craftsman style 1-story bungalows as well as many Tudors with 1-car garages that would accommodate the family's model T Ford.
Housing Styles and Types
Most of the homes in the Victory Neighborhood are single family homes, Tudors and Craftsmans built in the 20’s and 30s. Larger homes in similar styles are located along Victory Memorial Drive and there are a few mutli-family housing units located in the interior of the neighborhood.
