Our old neighborhood is the area just east of downtown Urbana and is generally bound by Main Street on the north, Cottage Grove Avenue on the east, Washington Street on the south, and Vine Street on the west.

We are an eclectic mix of housing types connected in part by brick streets and sidewalks flanked by large, old trees and walkable to many wonderful Urbana amenities.

Our area is historic, affordable, friendly, safe, and welcoming. While many of us have lived here for years, we always welcome our new neighbors, whether renters or owners.
