History Urban Renewal

The residents of the Greenbush formed a tightly knit community, where all races and religions got along with each other. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the largest portion of the Greenbush—the Triangle and the Brittingham area immediately southeast of West Washington—was bulldozed as a part of City and Federal Urban Renewal projects, and residents were scattered to new neighborhoods, many in South Madison, but also elsewhere in Dane County.
