convers avenue, mcintire terrace historic district

McIntire Terrace ;†] lies on the near northwest side of the city of Zanesville, the county seat of Muskingum County. The area was once farmland, but was laid out in 2-acre residential lots in the 1850s. The Terrace is so named because it is situated on a natural terrace which, prior to the construction of Interstate 70, overlooked the city. Although once a neighborhood of exclusively tree-lined brick streets, various roadway alterations (notably the construction of I-70 and the widening of Adair and Maple Avenues) have left two principal brick-paved areas: Abbey Place, east of Maple Avenue, and the lush neighborhood west of Maple Avenue ,between. McIntire, Blue, and: Adair Avenues. Since Maple Avenue, is the principaL northerly thoroughfare. out of the city (State Route_ 60), most of the intrusions which occur in the district are 1ocated here.

When nominated to the National Register in 1978, the Terrace remained a stable residential neighborhood of tree-lined streets paved with brick, a source of pride for the community and a significant example of an upper-class nineteenth-century neighborhood.
