From the late 1800's to the early 1900's, the Cooper-Young District was a thriving residential neighborhood. By the 1970's, however, many of the once beautiful homes were in a dismal state of disrepair and most of the area businesses stood empty. In 1976, the Cooper-Young Community Association was formed. This group began efforts to revitalize the neighborhood by reducing crime, restoring homes, and attracting businesses. Thanks to these efforts, Cooper-Young is now a thriving community known for its historical significance and diverse culture.
