Robert and Vera Johnson, an African American couple, developed an area along Flint Road called Flintridge Terrace. With far reaching vision and strong determination, this couple methodically laid out a community plan that became a beautiful and stable neighborhood. Flintridge was developed in the early 1960's. The area was platted into one-half acre residential home sites. A covenant was written that specified guidelines to maintain the neighborhood as it was originally planned. It was not a tract development, as the homes were designed and built to each owner's specification. Flintridge is a quiet community where the homeowners are predominantly African Americans. In 1961, when home construction began, the two roads in the area were dedicated to Sharon Township to assure that they would be serviced and maintained without additional cost to the homeowners.
