From the National Register of Historic Places nomination, section 8, page 18: 'The character and growth of the proposed Painter's Woods District reflects the cycles of development in Forest Grove at large. ThJdevelopers platted the subdivisions within Painter's Woods with smaller lots intended for residential dévelopment, but encouraged individual style and taste. While there is uniformity in the overall plat and street design, house sizes, stylesand construction dates have varied greatly. This has resulted in an overall built environment which now reflects the architectural styles, tastes and economic influences that occurred until Painters Woods was built out in the mid{wentieth century. painter's Woods includes the first modern planned subdivision in southern Forest Grove and is associated with significant trends in neighborhood development within Forest Grove as well as the nation. As Forest Grove gËw into a larger community in the late-nineteenth century and throughout the mid-twentieth century, the ð¡strict became the neighboihood where a number of prominent Forest Grove residents chose to settle including merchants, bãnkers, as well as civic and University leaders who shaped and guided the development and groürtfr of the City of Forest Grove. Additionally, the district includes two of the city's early hospitals.'
