The Ingersoll Place area developed as an adjunct to the nearby Woodland Place plat.  Ingersoll Place is defined more so by its architectural styles than by any identified historical factor.  The infill process resulted in a cohesive and unified architecture, predominantly square house and bungalow.

The plat assembled larger square house types on the high ground at High and 28th streets.  The bungalow grouping reflects the preference for placing bungalows on east or south-facing lots and Linden Street, being developed only on its north side for residential land uses, reads like a half-bungalow court. The district represents a Des Moines rarity, a residential plat that successfully developed and infilled with a unified architectural range of styles and types.
