the fabric of
  our community
For generations, Northside has stitched community and opportunity together. It is a living history — a patchwork of a place built for and by black people of Memphis.
the fabric of
  our community
We believe it.
We support it.
We celebrate it.
We elevate it.

Today, it continues that spirit as a community hub providing opportunities for every individual to prosper. Northside Square is where the threads of what was and what is becomes the fabric of what’s next …

As the oldest African-American neighborhood in North Memphis, Klondike has a long and proud history dating to its founding in 1899. The Klondike Smokey City Community Development Corporation and its partners, The Works, Inc. and Neighborhood Preservation, Inc. worked together on an historic transfer of properties from the Shelby County Land Bank. The transfer, in January of 2020, was the first step in what many hope is a path to stabilization for North Memphis.



Growing up walking distance from Northside, the school gave me, my friends, and family opportunities. I’m excited to see it doing this for the next generation as Northside Square.
