Glenwood or the Glenwood-Brooklyn Historic District is a historic neighborhood and national historic district located at Raleigh, North Carolina. The district encompasses 286 contributing buildings in an early-20th century streetcar suburb for working- and middle-class whites. Glenwood and Brooklyn were developed between about 1905 to 1951 and includes notable examples of Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, and Bungalow / American Craftsman style architecture. The houses are predominantly 1 1/2- and 2-story frame dwellings.
On April 5, 2016, Raleigh City Council voted for the city's first streetside historic overlay district. Area residents had asked for the rezoning since 2014, hoping to prevent too much new development. In many cases, improvements, demolition, and new buildings will now require a detailed review.
