Schumacher Place

Named for the Schumacher family who owned a dairy in the area, Schumacher Place was established in 1983. Many of the neighborhood’s early residents worked in the nearby Brewery District. However, Prohibition and The Great Depression negatively impacted the district’s economy. In the mid-1960s, Frank Fetch and a handful of others began their effort to save the small houses indigenous to the area.
