Hampton Terrace contains architectural influences including American Craftsman Style and bungalows—many built from the pattern books that were popular during the period—that were bought by blue-collar families, carpenters, clerks, and shipping and railroad employees. It is largely intact, looking much like it did during the years 1920–1931.
