This district was one of the loveliest residential areas during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The houses, with their Victorian gingerbread trim, languished in disrepair during the earlier 20th Century, but in the 1970s the area staged a comeback. The restored houses are worth a drive through the neighborhood on their own, but the area has also become a hip entertainment spot, with restaurants, nightclubs, and antique stores. One weekend each fall, the Cooper-Young neighborhood holds the Cooper-Young Festival with crafts, music, and food.
