Welcome to the website of the Arthur Capper Public Housing Oral History Project. The Arthur Capper and the Carrollsburg public housing projects were collectively known to their residents as "Cappers." They housed 707 households until the HOPE VI program demolished the buildings, replacing them with a mixed-income development. This website presents the oral histories and memorabilia of those who lived in Cappers.
