Two NRHA assisted-rental communities, Diggs Town and Oakleaf Forest, celebrate milestone anniversaries this month.

Diggs Town, named for J. Eugene Diggs, a prominent African-America attorney, celebrates its 60th anniversary. The community contains 422 units on 30 acres at 1619 Vernon Street. Diggs Town will undergo nearly $1 million in site improvements this year with new exterior doors, locks and storm doors.
Oakleaf Forest, celebrating 70 years, began as World War II housing in 1941. The 24-acre site at 1701 Greenleaf Drive hosts 265 apartment units. About $3.4 million in site, road and parking improvements have been made at Oakleaf over the last two years.

The anniversary festivities will be held jointly at Diggs Town from noon to 3 p.m. Friday with special remarks by NRHA CEO Shurl Montgomery and Board Chairman W. Sheppard “Shep” Miller III.
