Below are a few historical events capturing the initial development known as Fieldcrest Village (1952), to its renaming in 1989 (Jessie Jackson Townhomes) and to what is known today as the Heritage Community (Charleston Place, Forest View, Clark Ridge Commons, Nicholtown Green and Heritage at Sliding Rock).
