about foundation

" Welcome to Our Neighborhood "

In the 1930's and 40's the Calumet Mill Village was established to provide housing for the Calumet Mill Workers. The mill was owned and operated by the Callaway family. Initially, housing was built for mill workers in the McGhee Street, Gardner Street and Baugh Street areas. The neighborhood was later expanded to include its current boundaries of Greenville Street (North), East Depot Street (South), Morgan Street (West) and Render Street (East). In 2013 - The Calumet Village Neighborhood Association, Inc. (CVNA) was formally organized. In 2017 the name was changed to The Calumet Park Neighborhood Association, Inc.
