The historic district in East Marion is one of Shelby's earliest suburban neighborhoods, developed from 1921 to 1950. This neighborhood was Shelby's most successful City Beautiful Movement neighborhood. The movement promoted the development of "parklike" settings in cities. East Marion St., for example, followed natural topography, while the Central Shelby Historic District followed a traditional grid pattern. The city's zoning ordinance required that all street-level lots have frontage on East Marion Street, which was a major reason for the development of the Belvedere Park neighborhood.
