What Makes Us Unique
Those who founded the Fairfield Historic District Association work to safeguard and preserve one of Shreveport’s oldest neighborhoods for one simple reason: an appreciation of the qualities that create a superior example of an early twentieth century neighborhood.
As Shreveport boomed in the early 1900’s, so did the Fairfield District, quickly becoming one of Shreveport’s most prosperous suburbs. The professional and cultural diversity so prominent in Shreveport in those years is clearly visible on the streets of the Fairfield Historic District today. The blend of architectural styles includes Eclectic Revival, Queen Anne, Victorian, American Four Square and bungalows. This district offers an aesthetic appeal rarely found in the area.
The Fairfield Historic District’s unique concentration of architectural style resulted in its recognition in the National Registry of Historical Places. Hollywood has discovered these same qualities and can often be seen filming in the streets of the area.
Although the Fairfield Historic District lies only two miles from the bright lights of Shreveport’s riverboat casinos and Shreveport’s thriving Bio-technology industry lies just to the southwest, the Fairfield District offers a glimpse into Shreveport’s storied past and diverse present.
If you believe that the Fairfield Historic District is worthy of preservation for future generations, then please join the FHDA or volunteer for us!
