Though often not built on as grand a scale, homes in the Lettered Streets are often every bit as historic and charming. Most of the middle-class homes here were built in the late 1800s and early 1900s on the site of some of the area's first settlements, including George Pickett's house (still standing) and the original sawmill at the mouth of Whatcom Creek.

Today the 110-block neighborhood is clearly defined on the map and is bounded by Holly Street, Broadway, North Street, Cornwall and Whatcom Creek. Many of the non-residential buildings also add to the historical flavor of the area, including the Great Northern Depot, the Aftermath Clubhouse and the Roeder School. The Maritime Heritage Center reminds residents of the area's nautical roots.
