The Shaver Rental Houses National Historic District is located within the Downtown Salisbury Local Historic District. This is the smallest district in Salisbury, as it includes only four properties, including three Queen Anne style homes on W. Council Street, built c. 1907 and a cottage at 120 N. Jackson Street. The three houses on W. Council Street are significant as representative examples of the type of rental housing built in Salisbury between 1899 and 1910 in response to the city’s tremendous growth. Each house represents a very specific time and esthetic in Salisbury. The houses embody the distinctive architectural features characteristic of modest Queen Anne style houses of that period, exhibiting asymmetrical massing, steeply pitched hipped roofs with cross gables, one story wrap around porches and dominant front facing gables.
