Frankly, I was a little disappointed by the Bremond Block. The houses are nicely kept and beautiful to look out. However, this quick walk around the block only provided me about 15 minutes of entertainment. It took me longer to get there on the bus...More

If you are interested in architecture, definitely worth a stop. Parking on street and easy to walk around block to view all structures. Neighborhood is inviting. Gorgeous old oak trees can be viewed, too.
