Development began in 1947 when a nonprofit veterans organization purchased nearly 50 acres and developed it into what was called lower Norwood. Builders position these homes on lots to take it manage of the views from this area. This was unique in that all these homes were slightly different rather than the postwar tract housing neighborhoods that were more common at this time. Several of the properties were so unique they were featured in home and garden magazines in the 1950s.
