“I especially enjoy living in Belhaven Heights because it feels like an urban oasis. I’m in the heart of Jackson but have my own quiet and comfortable retreat that I love calling home.”
“During my 15 years of living in Belhaven as a renter, homeowner and land-lady, dog and cat owner, mom, and employee of a Belhaven museum, the things I like best about my neighborhood have remained the same: my generous and interesting neighbors, the diversity and quality of the architecture, the lovely gardens, and walking the tree-lined streets.”
“It was important to our family to live in the City and be part of a Community. Belhaven’s convenient location, historic charm, and strong sense of place can’t be reproduced or replicated.”
