Mainly populated with African-Americans “The Berg” is located in the northern part of Old Town. Founded in the mid of XIX century, during the Civil War, the Berg area was settled by enslaved African-Americans from Petersburg, Virginia and was known at that time as Petersburg or Grantsville. Unfortunately, there are no remaining buildings from that period. The Berg neighborhood spreads over an area of around 15 blocks. The neighborhood is west of Madison Street, south of Princess Street, west of North St. Asaph Street and east of North Fairfax Street.

Most prominent landmarks of this area are two blocks of units within this complex. The James Bland Homes, named after an musician and songwriter of African-American origin, built in 1954, and the Samuel Madden Homes, named after the African-American pastor of the Alfred Street Baptist Church.

People commonly think that the origins of the Berg’s name directs to the monolithic, iceberg-like buildings of this complex, while it got its name from the mentioned African-American refugees. It was used as a prototype for the black ghetto in 2000s movie Remember the Titans, which dramatizes crisis of city public school integration in the 1970s.
