Homes on Brookeville Road

In order to market Section Three as an affordable neighborhood for middle-class home buyers all while maintaining property values, the Land Company placed restrictions on the deeds it sold. The deeds required that bungalows like the one pictured here, which still sits between Raymond and Shepherd Streets, be set back at least 30 feet from the curb and comply with a minimum construction cost of $3,000 dollars.
