The Smokey Hollow Commemoration

Organized by Blueprint 2000, contributed to by many community members, and designed by city planner Dan Donovan.

The village-like exhibit pays tribute to the African American neighborhood that once occupied half of today’s Cascades Park.

Three open, brick-and-steel “spirit houses” have been constructed to represent the shotgun houses that once filled the neighborhood. Each of the houses is named — “Community Spirit,” “Family Spirit” and “Enduring Spirit” — and includes photos, maps and descriptions

Grand Opening held in September 2015

Located at the north end of Cascades Park, where Franklin Blvd. meets Meridian St. under the Apalachee Parkway overpass.
