While there are several communities and homes in Westfield that date back generations, the Kimball Avenue Historic District is Westfield's only official historic district. It's located along Kimball Avenue between Lawrence Avenue and Elm Street.

Charming Homes

Many homes in the Kimball Avenue Historic District resemble Dutch Colonials, Georgian-style homes, and Queen Annes. Most feature rich green lawns, tree-filled yards, and unique curb appeal that comes from their historic architecture.

Exceptional Schools

Westfield's public schools are nothing short of extraordinary. According to New Jersey Monthly's 2016 rankings, Westfield High School is #8 among the top high schools in New Jersey. Residents of this section are just minutes from this excellent high school.
