An Urban Experience
Nestled downtown in one of American's oldest and most historic cities, Historic Jackson Ward
offers a truly unique urban experience. Step out the doors of an early 1800's home and onto
paver sidewalks that bleed into a modern world. Shadowed by high-rises, yet illuminated by urban
lights, ours is a world of the senses. Listen to the raw sounds that echo down our alleys as
bands prepare for their next big gig or listen as the birds chirp amongst the well-established trees
that line our city blocks. Peer into one of the many art galleries along the Broad Street
Corridor or relax at one of the restaurants or coffee houses.
