The Glendale Park Historic District is eligible for placement upon the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for its representation of the broader patterns of suburban development in Hammond, Lake County, Indiana demonstrated in its planning and development and under Criterion C for its fine examples of architecture . Glendale Park is a limited access enclave built around a central park/plaza and is the first planned, non-linear addition to the City of Hammond. The district qualifies under Criterion C for its many examples of early twentieth century architectural styles and though many of these houses are spacious they are all considered to be modern homes . Among the architecture in the district are examples of the Colonial and Tudor Revivals , Prairie School and Bungalow/Craftsman styles . Several of the houses are the work of locally significant master architects J. T. Hutton and Addison C . Berry and all demonstrate the embodiment of the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, or method of construction. The district demonstrates a movement away from the industrial city center of Hammond towards the suburbs as set forth in the Multiple Property listing for Historic Residential Suburbs in the United States, 1830-1960.
