Historic District

 

The Chaffee Crossing Historic District is a unique area in the middle of the 7,000-acre Chaffee Crossing development where WWII-era history is combining with modern planning to create a walkable urban community. The Historic District Master Plan includes mixed-use areas with residential spaces, restaurants, recreational and entertainment venues, retail shops, commercial and service businesses as well as public areas.

 

Chaffee Crossing’s historic district warmly embraces the region’s rich history with a variety of venues appealing to people of all ages and interests. Area educators are seeking to build schools, education and training facilities nearby. The combination of education and tourism in this district is creating an attractive environment for new businesses.
