Remington Historic District Walking Tour
Remington's Historic District, on the State and National Registers, includes 84 properties with a total of 158 historic resources, consisting primarily of late-19th and early 20th century dwellings, churches and commercial properties. Although a community existed here from the 1820's, few resources survived the Civil War. The vast majority of buildings in the 49-acre district date from the late-19th century and include architectural styles and forms such as Quenn Anne, the I-house, and the L- and T-shaped house. Buildings in Remington tend to be fairly ornamental, with decorative features including corbelled chimneys, metal or slate shingles, towers, projecting Queen Anne bays, wooden and pressed tin in the gable ends, and sawn and turned woodwork in porch detailing. The town walking tour is designed to showcase these buildings.
