Current boundaries include I-75 to the north, the Lodge Freeway to the east, Bagley and Porter streets to the south, and Rosa Parks Boulevard (12th Street) to the west.The neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Many Irish from County Cork who fled the Potato Famine settled here, and the neighborhood became known as Corktown.
