The Brownsville Historic Survey is an ongoing project and this website was created to present draft work products. Please let us know what you think!
Plusurbia will be coordinating with the Historic Hampton House and the Brownsville Civic Neighborhood Association throughout the Brownsville Historic Survey. Together we will conduct “History Harvests” to gather memories of the neighborhood, provide project updates, and request continuous feedback to make sure we are getting the story right.
Stay tuned for future events.
