Elston Grove Historic District Streetscape

Michigan City, Indiana

Elston Grove Historic District is a national historic district located at Michigan City, LaPorte County, Indiana. The project included major renovation to the 27 city blocks in the district. Features included two pocket parks at either end of Eighth Street, reclaimed street paver crosswalks and intersections, and masonry identification signs.


A key project element was to have a diverse street tree planting scheme to replace the dying tree canopy. We worked closely with the City Forester to develop a diverse list of trees that included three maple species, four oak species, ironwood, and two species of ornamental trees.
