Nauck Town Square

The lush setting of Nauck attracts new residents, increasing property values and changing density and demographics. The project’s challenge is to envision and design a place that honors the community’s rich history; validating the patterns and practices of current residents.

Nauck Town Square is “Green Valley’s” crossroads! At the intersection of S. Kenmore St. and Shirlington Rd., and buttressed by the AME Lomax Church and Drew Model Elementary School. The FREED sculpture, built from interconnected “slave badges” validates the presence of freed blacks who occupied this landscape, “Freedmen’s Village” prior to Emancipation, whose descendants still live here.
