Evansdale / Elk Run / Raymond Real Estate
Evansdale real estate is located in Black Hawk County, Iowa. The population of Evansdale is 4,751 and the city is part of the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Metropolitan Statistical Area. Evansdale is a fairly new city – incorporated in 1947 – although the growth began at the turn of the century. Many Evansdale homes for sale today are located in areas that were developed sections of East Waterloo Township. The first section to become part of the city of Evansdale was previously Evans Crossing.
In the early 1900s, an area between Grand Boulevard and Evans Road was the site of the Elk Run Hotel, which became a retreat for weekend visitors. With large ballrooms and a dining room, the hotel was well known by residents and visitors who arrived via commuter trains on the Illinois Central Railroad. The hotel faced the Cedar River.
Although it is not quite certain why, the hotel failed and the land was purchased by William Fox, who formed the Home Acres Land Association in 1928. Another section was developed by Jack Casebeer, just before Fox formed the association. This Evansdale real estate became a summer resort as well. There were many developments before 1941, but after the War, a building boom ensued and this led to the incorporation of the city.
Many homes in Evansville were built after 1969 when the Urban Renewal program was introduced. The Waterloo Schools system serves residents of Evansdale real estate.
