Historic neighborhoods around Cumberland University:
West Spring Street, South Tarver Avenue, South Hatton & South Greenwood Street, along with Castle Heights Avenue, and Pennsylvania Avenue
with the re-location of Cumberland University’s campus in 1896, new neighborhoods were created.
University professors and other prominent residents built homes along the newly constructed streets. Homes in this area are fine examples of late Victorian architecture and early twentieth century styles. Additional neighborhoods west on Spring Street and the first blocks off West Main on Castle Heights Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue would follow.
One such development was the Morningside Heights neighborhood laid out in 1937. This development included lots on the east and west side of Castle Heights Avenue, north of West Spring Street and on the north and south side of West Spring, west of its intersection with Castle Heights Avenue.
