It was a low-key and close-knit community with many older African-Americans, Key said. Then, about four years ago, her neighbors started selling.
Edgehill had one of the largest racial shifts in the county during the past decade. This historic African-American community was home to black lawyers, doctors and other professionals in the early 20th century. It remained predominantly black until this development boom.

The census tract of Eastwood Neighbors and Greenwood, for instance, went from 40 percent African-American to 23 percent.

The region's soaring home values — up more than 34 percent over four years — have strained many residents.
