The University Gateway Houses: A History and Update on the Relocated Survivors
This program will introduce you to the earliest properties in the University Neighborhood. Hear about their long, colorful histories and the significant residents who made their homes in this charming community at the foot of the University Gates. All but four of the homes were demolished in 2018 to make way for additional university buildings; with the exception of a parking garage, the remainder of the area is currently undeveloped dirt lots.
