Historical Context:
The Belknap neighborhood is made up of two distinct zones. Atop the steep bluffs of Belknap Hill is a residential neighborhood featuring modest yet historic homes, three public parks, and remarkable Coit School, built in 1880 and fully restored in 2003. The booming life sciences corridor, a multi-billion dollar medical research hub rising along Michigan Avenue, also borders the neighborhood to the south.
