Kiln Row

kiln-row-1200x700

This southern suburb of Denbrook consists mostly of gentrified brick homes built over a century ago. Originally, this area was mined for clay and covered in kilns, which were used to bake the bricks that still cover the faces of many buildings in the historic districts of Denbrook. Eventually, the clay deposits were exhausted and more plentiful supplies discovered along the banks of the Hopkins, where bricks are still produced to this day.

Though the residents of Kiln generally enjoy a low crime rate in this area, there have been recent reports of gangs out of the Barrens who have staged home invasions. As disturbing as this is, these appear to have been isolated incidents.
