History[edit]

The developer-built Green Meadows was platted in the early 1940s and completed by 1942. The street pattern of Green Meadows is a fragmented grid of curved parallel streets. The houses are primarily two-family attached units constructed of brick or brick and frame. The Green Meadows subdivision was extended on its south end by two streets in 1957.
