Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church

In the 1950s, the Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church (pictured) was established in the area, drawing many Greek families who moved to the neighborhood through the 1960s and into the 1970s.

It wasn't until the late 1980s that the neighborhood, after petitioning the city, was officially recognized with the name Greektown. Before that, it was known simply as "The Hill."
