Locust Grove is a neighborhood in the Northeast corner of Charlottesville. It includes portions of the Rivanna Trail, Park Street, Meadowcreek, Northeast Park and Pen Park. While the neighborhood is mostly made up of single family homes, River Road and Long Street are commercial centers[1].

History

The neighborhood first started in the 1890s as the Locust Grove Subdivision. This history gives the neighborhood its name. However, between the 1940s and 1970s the neighborhood saw the bulk of its build out and transitioned from a rural neighborhood to suburban in this time and with the help of the 250 Bypass[1].

Boundaries

The borders of the neighborhood are the 250 Bypass, Rivanna River, the border with Albemarle County, and Schenks Branch
