Most of the houses in Anfield are terraced houses from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This type of property is particularly dense around Anfield stadium, although in 1991, a whole street of terraced houses (Kemlyn Road) was demolished to make way for a new stand at Anfield stadium.
Anfield Stadium, the home of Liverpool F.C., and the original home of Everton F.C. is located within the district. Everton moved to Goodison Park in 1892 and the new Liverpool Football Club moved in. They have played there ever since, and it now holds more than 45,000 spectators all seated. However, Liverpool are now planning to build a new stadium in adjoining Stanley Park that could be ready in 2010.
It is a hotspot of "urban legends", meaning that there are many rumours of dubious credibility throughout history of "monsters" terrorising the area, such as Spring Heeled Jack over a century ago.
