The East End Historic District (boundary increase) is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C: Architecture as a locally significant collection of domestic architecture representing the architectural styles and vernacular building types typical in the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. The boundary increase area is stylistically and chronologically in keeping with the properties within the original district boundary, listed in 1978. The period of significance dates from c.1905 when the first building within the district was constructed (#510) and ends in 1962 with the constructing of the youngest contributing resource (#270). As a whole, the area, combined with the original district, retains its original character as a residential neighborhood in a capital city and county seat. The vast majority of the individual resources retain their character defining elements that illustrate architectural styles and types.
