History and architectural features
The oldest community in Pennsylvania's Pocono Region, Stroudsburg was incorporated as a borough in 1815 and then designated as the county seat at the time Monroe County was created in 1836. It is also the site of multiple historic homes, the majority of which date from the mid-19th to early 20th century, and which are representative of a number of popular architectural styles of this period, including Colonial Revival, Bungalow / American Craftsman, Queen Anne, North Cat, Gavel End Bungalow, Northern Removed Colonial, and West Gate Bungalow. Eight of the buildings pre-date 1858.
Listing of this district on the National Register of Historic Places
In November 1988, Janet W. Foster, the associate director of Acroterion in Morristown, New Jersey, completed the nomination form to secure this placement of the Academy Hill Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. The district was then officially added to the National Register later that same year.
