Shacktown Revival

New, 9 comments

Built in the early '40s to house workers at the nearby Willow Run bomber plant, Westland's Norwayne neighborhood has been in decline for decades. Despite its rough condition and unremarkable architecture, Norwayne is now making a push to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. Pretty impressive for a neighborhood jokingly referred to as Shacktown. [Det News]
