Calumet Heights

Named after the nearby Calumet River and the ridge of Niagara limestone that runs through the area, Calumet Heights is a "solidly middle class" neighborhood that is almost exclusively residential. While most of the housing stock and buildings in the area are from the early-to-mid 1900s, one of the community's newest additions is the LEED certified field house at Jesse Owens Park. Completed in 2009, this standout field house includes a "nature garden surrounding the park, a rooftop garden and solar panels on the roof."
