Inscription.  

The Henry Albertson Subdivision Historic District includes 71 houses built between 1884 and circa 1940. The district boundaries correspond to the residential subdivision of Henry Albertson's (1834-1895) 24-acre estate during Lansdowne's early evolution as a commuter suburb in the late-nineteenth century. The National Park Service entered the district in The National Register of Historic Places in 1998 as a significant concentration of well-preserved houses exemplifying late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century architectural styles, such as Queen Anne, Colonial Revival and Tudor Revival.
 
Erected by the Residents of the District and the Greater Lansdowne Civic Association.
