Cottage Home is a historic neighborhood on Downtown's eastside that boasts residents of all backgrounds. The Cottage Home Neighborhood Association remains one of the city's most active neighborhood groups. This close-knit community of 150 homes regularly gets together for block parties and neighborhood clean ups and has one of the largest community gardens in the city. The quaint and quirky cottages are adorned with gingerbread trim porches, spindles and fishscale shingles. Live in one of these brightly- colored cottages or streamlined lofts and be part of the community.
