2700 Block of Preston Street
Location of Centennial Celebration
The 2700 block of Preston Street has been anchored by long-time Old Shandon residents, often representing multiple generations of families. From this area have come some of the suburb’s most energetic civic activists who have worked toward preserving both the memories and buildings that make Old Shandon special. In 2004, many long-time and newer residents invited former Old Shandonites back to the neighborhood for its centennial celebration. The heart of the celebration took place along Preston and Maple streets, which contain the bulk of the historic residences included within the Old Shandon Historic District, listed within the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
