University Row Neighborhood
Interested in learning more about us?
University Row is part of an older suburb once known as Upper Dayton View. Settled in the late teens and twenties, the area drew large numbers of prominent Daytonians who had suffered through the 1913 flood and were looking for high ground safe from the threat of devastating flood waters. Developed on farm land at the northern edge of the city, Upper Dayton View’s winding streets and picturesque homes and gardens offered a park-like escape from the bustle of the old city center. By 1930, its beautiful and spacious Colonial, Georgian, Tudor, Spanish Revival, and Craftsman style homes had made the neighborhood the city’s most elegant and prestigious new suburb.
