However in the early 2000s, the owners sold their land to developers who created a large-scale neighborhood named Ridglea, and community living area for residents older than 55 years old. The restaurant still exists and is still popular with locals. Bucktown took its name from Buck Tavern which stood upon one of the corners since 1790. In 1883 it had only six houses and a hotel.
