Davis Bottom, 1980

Posted on November 20, 2014 | in Uncategorized | by
Bill Huddleston, left, and his sister Elizabeth Wardle, right,  lived next door to each other in Davis Bottom in 1980. At the time they were paying $85-a-month rent in the low-income community tucked between South Broadway and West High Street. In 2006 the 29 homes in Davis Bottom were torn down to make way for the Newtown Pike Extension. After eight years of work on the infrastructure the first of fourteen affordable housing units for families displaced by the project were dedicated Thursday November 20, 2014, and called Davis Park View.
