The Woodland Place National Register Historic District is significant for its consistent architectural expression and design of popular bungalows and square house types.  It also expresses an era of large-scale substantial westward expansion of the city’s residential frontier and specifically the infilling of the corridor defined by Ingersoll Avenue and Kingman Boulevard.

The successful and relatively rapid upbuilding of this plat reflects the developmental efforts of Henry Pharmer, a leading Des Moines real estate developer, home builder, and self-styled “Bungalow Man”.
