The northwest corner of Jackson and Carr Sts. was developed with residential structures in the 1880s, which remained until the late 1920s.

By the late 1920s, both corners of Jackson and Carr were developed with commercial buildings serving the employees at American Tobacco and the neighborhood.

These buildings were torn down by the city in 1967 by the city redevelopment authority/urban renewal funds. It became a parking lot.

In 2005, this street was closed and the city deck for American Tobacco was built with its southeast corner on the site.


Looking northwest, 02.10.08.
