Sweet Auburn Historic District

Auburn Ave. NE and Courtland St. NE

More financial institutions, professionals, educators, entertainers and politicians were on this one mile of street than any other African American street in the South. The street was "paved in gold," observed John Wesley Dobbs. The buildings still existing within this once thriving and vigorous black community and the six centers of higher education adjacent to this street today honor the resilience and tenacity of a people operating at a high level within the confines of extreme social and economic segregation.
