Oakland Terrace Apartments

In 1971 a neighborhood church built the Oakland Terrace Apartments, a HUD-assisted property. These apartments have a special significance to the community because it was built on the location of the former Boylan-Haven School, which was founded in 1886 as Boylan High School. The school's health training program led to the founding of the Brewster Hospital - which was one of the first such institutions for African-Americans in Florida and among the earliest of its kind in the South.

Unfortunately, the school was closed in 1959 and the building was demolished in 1971. The Oakland Terrace Apartments were built in its place. After a thorough stabilization and rehabilitation process, these residences are once again high-quality housing where families can find shelter and rental assistance. And with a brand-new playground, provided by KaBOOM! and Humana, children can learn and grow at Oakland Terrace again.
