Chrysler Village

Chrysler Village, a tiny neighborhood in the Clearing community area, is, in some ways, a small-scale former company town that is mainly made up of "sturdy brick single family, duplex and townhouse homes." These homes were built during World War II to house Chrysler Defense Plant workers that were building engines for B29 Bombers at a plant just to the south of the neighborhood. The plant, which later housed the Ford Aircraft Engine Division, was located on the land that is now occupied by the Ford City Mall.
