Biographical or Historical Information
Captain Fisher died in 1903 in New York City. He was buried there, though his remains were later moved to Green Hill Cemetery in the Fisher Park Neighborhood. The neighborhood saw the majority of its development between the turn of the century and the 1930s. Most homes reflect the popular styles of this time as Craftsman, Prairie Style, and Colonial Revival structures dominate the neighborhood.
The Fisher Park Neighborhood Association was formed in 1978 in response to commercial developments and rezoning and with the intent to preserve the neighborhood's historic aesthetic and residential nature. In 1982, a portion of the neighborhood gained national and local historic district designation. This Fisher Park Historic District is within the larger boundaries of the Fisher Park Neighborhood.
