Greektown Historic District History[edit] The area known today as Greektown was first settled in the 1830s by German immigrants, who created a primarily residential neighborhood in the area.[3] However, in the earliest years of the 20th century, most of the German residents began moving from the neighborhood into areas further from downtown.[3] As the Germans left the area, new Greek immigrants moved in, spurred by Theodore Gerasimos, the first documented Greek immigrant in Detroit.[3] The newly arrived Greeks established businesses in the neighborhood. By the 1920s, the area was becoming primarily commercial rather than residential, and the Greek residents began moving out; however, the restaurants, stores, and coffeehouses they established remained.[3] The next thirty years brought a melange of immigrants to the few residential spaces left in the neighborhood. Redevelopment in the 1960s led to the neighborhood becoming more commercialized to provide space for municipal buildings and parking.[3] References[edit]
