Wilson envisioned an upscale neighborhood that was symmetrically planned with strategically placed live oak and sycamore trees throughout. Eastwood officially opened in September 1913.

In fact, Eastwood has one of the largest collections of such styles, still intact, in all of the US. Some of the later-build homes feature prairie-style influences, which were born from the 20th century Arts and Crafts movement.
