Map This Location


The street pattern of Scottholm frequently responds to the site’s sloping topography. Where Scottholm Terrace and Crawford Avenue split, Scottholm heads to the top of the drumlin, taking advantage of expansive views, while Crawford runs along the base of this steep slope. A set of cobblestone retaining walls and a stair occupy the southern corner of this intersection, allowing pedestrians to mount the hill from Crawford Avenue to Scottholm Terrace above.
