Welcome to Azalea District

Oil booms and flower blooms
 
Imagine riding lazily through a historic Texan neighborhood fit with cobblestone roads, single-family landmark homes, and a breathtaking backdrop of blooming azalea bushes. The scenery depicted is everyday life for residents of the city of Tyler's Azalea District.
 
Charming brick streets, historic homes, architectural heritage, and lush gardens separate the Azalea District as a distinct East Texas community boasting an extensive residential concentration of Tyler's early- to mid-20th century dwellings. Each home in the district is notable in its own right, and together they create a neighborhood that stands out. All 36 known provinces in the community showcase mixed subdivisions and architectural designs, with unique structures including Craftsman, Classic Revival, International Style, Queen Anne, and Ranch.
 
The Azalea District displays both Tyler's rapid expansion with the discovery of the East Texas Oil Field and its architectural legacy from the first 53 years of the 20th century. As the area expanded, the community added schools, churches, and limited commercial spaces to accommodate its growing population. These new additions helped to create a more lively and thriving community. In addition, brick roadways, utility systems, stream channelization, and new public parks paid for by the city and the private sector contributed to the area's growth. As a result, the Azalea Residential Historic District Nomination was authorized and established as a National Historic District in June 2003.
