Robinson Parkway & Henderson Terrace Neighborhood

Burlington Free Press, June 11, 1929

As businesses and institutions overtook industry as drivers of the local economy, pressure grew to provide housing for their middle-and upper middle-class employees. The area just south of the University of Vermont campus developed between 1920 and 1980 with most occurring between 1925 and 1945.

With their spacious, often irregular-shaped lots, Robinson Parkway and Henderson Terrace had a more upscale, suburban feel than the dense grid layout of the Five Sisters and Addition neighborhoods.
