Predominantly with African-American community “The Berg” is located in the northern part of Old Town. Founded in 1861, during the Civil War, the Berg Neighborhood was settled by enslaved blacks from Petersburg, Virginia and was known at that time as Petersburg or Grantsville. Unfortunately, there are no remaining buildings from that period. The Berg covers an area of about 15 blocks. The northern side is bordered by Madison Street, the southern side by Princess Street, western side by North St. Asaph Street and the eastern by North Fairfax Street.

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

People usually assume that the origins of the Berg’s name refer to the monolithic, iceberg-like buildings of this complex, while it got its name by the mentioned black 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.
