Growing housing costs appear to be driving Charlottesville’s black population out of the city’s historically black neighborhoods, according to a new analysis of census data by researchers at the University of Virginia.

Average home values in the city doubled from $160,000 to $321,000 between 2000 and 2010, with the largest increases occurring in the historically black neighborhoods of Rose Hill, 10th and Page, Starr Hill, Fifeville and Ridge Street, which researchers from the university’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service believe could be due to gentrification.
