Get a Look at History
Audubon Park was a 1,000-acre parcel of land given away by King George III when the U.S. was still part of England to a Colonel who served in the French and Indian War. His heirs farmed the land for generations.
The Audubon Park Country Club and golf course was designed in 1906. That’s when Audubon Park began to take on the look it still has to this day. The former farmland was turned into a pretty collection of streets and small parks to provide plenty of green spaces and natural beauty. Lots of trees were planted to provide living spaces for birds, too.
The entire neighborhood is on the register of National Historic Places and the entire neighborhood is full of lovely residential homes. See them all and start picking out the one you want to live in!
