Carriage Town Historic Neighborhood is Flint's best kept secret. Carriage Town is a local historic district that was established in 1982 by civic minded individuals to preserve Flint's rich automotive past. The Carriage Town name best describes the majority of extant housing built when Flint was the Carriage Capitol of the United States and World. This housing sheltered workers who had no choice but to walk to work. It was also home to many auto pioneers such Buick, Durant, Nash and more. Many of its workers and management lived in the neighborhood between 1876 and 1920. The success of the carriage manufacturers in Flint lead to Flint being named the “Vehicle City” in 1905. The Carriage Town Historic District’s boundaries are the Flint River on the south, Fifth Avenue on the north, Begole Street and Atwood Stadium on the west, and North Saginaw Street on the East. Carriage Town is home to great small businesses such as The Good Beans Cafe, Vogt's Flowers, Soggy Bottom Bar, Witherbee's Market, Hoffman's Deco Deli, The Durant, Berridge Apartments, La Familia Mexican Restaurant and much more. The neighborhood is also seeing a rebirth of historic renovations, lofts, apartments and many people moving into the neighborhood.
