The College Quarter Historic District is located on the Northwestern shores of Lake Virginia, in Downtown Winter Park. It consists of 150 residential properties and is bordered by French Ave, Antonette Ave, Maryland and McIntyre Ave. Just steps from Rollins College and all the shops and restaurants of Park Ave, this Historic Winter Park neighborhood holds many architectural gems. This area started being developed in the mid-1800’s when Rollins College was established, but residences were few and scattered. The early subdivision and residential development of College Quarter took place during the first half of the Twentieth Century. In 1995 the College Quarter Neighborhood Association (CQNA) was formed to preserve and improve the quality of life of the residents, maintain the residential quality of the neighborhood and to protect and enhance property values. The Collge Quarter neighborhood is the quintessential Winter Park neighborhood.
