Dating back to the civil war, this historic neighborhood is located in the heart of Brookhaven. The neighborhood was originally made up of long-term low or moderate-income residents. Little investment was made in the community and the neighborhood was declining as home ownership decreased from absentee landlords. In the 1990s, significant upscale development was going up all around Lynwood Park selling from $300,000 to $750,000. The community began to experience development pressure as long-term residents were urged to sell and vacant properties were targeted for acquisition. Today, Lynwood Park is stabilized and revitalized with an abundance of newer construction craftsman style homes.
