Square footage is vast in the Garfield Districts ranging from modest Bungalows averaging 800 square feet to Period Revival homes around 1,800 square feet, some Spanish Colonials, Ranch Style homes and English Cottages. A few of these homes were built as early as 1883! The history in Garfield is abundant and the architecture is truly noteworthy.
