The Homes

Much of the streetscape of McPherson is dominated by beautifully restored and maintained historic homes dating back to the 1880s. Eastlake and Queen Anne styles are the most common styles, and most structures are original, and even the more recent homes constructed over the years reflect the historic charm of the neighborhood. Since 1970, 90% of the homes have been updated with more modern features and upgrades, and many of the converted multi-family structures have returned to single family homes.

The Community

Backyards and tree-lined streets await in the friendly residential community of McPherson Town Historic District. Though it’s just minutes from Downtown Dayton, McPherson is a separate and connected community where residents get to know each other through chili cook-offs, movie nights, brunches and dinners, neighborhood cleanups, and more. It’s also a great place for getting active, with the Great Miami Recreational Trail running along the river or the RiverScape Metro Park just over the bridge.
