1. Cedar Crest Historic District Marker
Inscription.  Cedar Crest was the Town of Normal's first comprehensively planned subdivision. This district was designed by architect Aaron T. Simmons and built by Bert Marley Kuhn between 1914 and 1930. Cedar Crest's curving streets and craftsman style houses suggest a rural English village, characteristic of the Arts and Crafts period. Cedar Crest represents early twentieth century innovation in town planning and architecture.
