Additional Information about the Area
Congress Heights was once farmland that became residentially developed during the late 1800s. But the popular streetcar suburb spiraled into decline during the modern era, falling victim to industrial pollution and crime.
That has changed in recent years. Today, there’s a shiny new Giant Superstore, a pop-up location for Whole Foods events, and the aforementioned St. Elizabeth’s project.
