Long Description:
The Woodlawn Avenue Row is historically and architecturally significant as one of a rare surviving group of multi-unit frame residences, designed to resemble rowhouses, in the City of Buffalo. The row is one of only four intact groups of similar housing remaining in the Masten neighborhood of north central Buffalo, the only area in the city where rowhouses were built. Built in 1898, it is the most decorative of the surviving rows. It was built by Louis F. Lautenslager at a cost of $7500. Although three of the end units were demolished circa 1950, four units of the original building remain intact to indicate its historical status.
