EARLEWOOD PROTECTION AREA
The Earlewood Neighborhood is the sum of several subdivisions that developed after 1900, and over time, grew together to achieve one identity. The neighborhood illustrates the development of an early Columbia neighborhood from the time of great suburban expansion in the early twentieth century through the housing boom of the post-World War II period. In area A, many of the historic structures were built between approximately 1910 and 1945; while in Area B, the development occurred between 1940 and 1955. Earlewood was designated a local Protection Area in 2005.
