Get Involved

The Historic Marker near the corner of Central Avenue and Boulevard of the Arts (formerly 6th Street) marks the heart of Rosemary District. Established in the 1880s, the area called Overtown was a thriving live/work/play African-American community.

Today, it is a growing, thriving and diverse live/work/play community.
