"District 5 is the epicenter of culture, education, business, entertainment and medicine." - Councilwoman Mary Sheffield

WE ARE BREWSTER DOUGLASS

For 80 years, the first federal public housing projects for African Americans stood here. The Brewster-Douglass homes were built between 1935 and 1955. At their peak occupancy during the 50s and 60s, the Brewsters housed 10,000 residents.  Before the Brewsters, this used to be the western edge of the Paradise Valley neighborhood.  Now, the area awaits redevelopment in the historic Brewster-Douglas Recreation Center, as well as other planned activity for the area.
