Birchcliff Parkway Development, Burlington, Vermont

Birchcliff Parkway in Burlington was a typical post-war housing development designed to meet FHA guidelines that opened the door to home ownership. The development boasted a convenient location, comprehensive infrastructure, accessible financing, and protective covenants. The reference to a protective covenant in this advertisement requires further research to understand its specific restrictions. Many developments of this period had protective covenants that implicitly or explicitly prohibited minorities.
