We will start at Freedom Corner, corner Crawford and Centre) to discuss effects of Urban Renewal in the late 1950s and observe current efforts at revitalization. We will visit the August Wilson house on Bedford Avenue (https://augustwilsonhouse.org), followed by stops on and around Centre Avenue that Wilson walked by on a regular basis. We will examine current new construction and the hoped for “Rebirth of The Hill” with business and residential initiatives, including Crawford Roberts and the New Granada Theatre complex.
