The Greenbrier Neighborhood consists of nearly 650 acres of area located in the extreme northern section of Charlottesville. The boundaries of the neighborhood are the 250 Bypass, Brandywine Drive, Rio Road and the Albemarle County border.[1] The neighborhood was originally located in Albemarle County but Charlottesville annexed the land in 1964.[2] The Greenbrier Neighborhood is home to Greenbrier Elementary School and Greenbrier Park on the northern ends of the city limits. It is also home to the current campus of Charlottesville High School, which moved from the old Lane High School Building in the 1970s. Across from the high school is Theodose Stadium. The neighborhood also is home to McIntire Park, as well as the Brooks Family YMCA.

An advertisement in the January 10, 1959 Daily Progress described "desirable homes" with a price range between $15,500 and $28,000. Home sites were available for $3,000.

Note: The average (median) money income of families in the United States was $5,600 in 1960, according to estimates released by the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. This was about $200, or 4 percent, higher than in 1959, despite the downturn in economic activity in the closing months of 1960.[3]
