Save this house - Restoration project

This community is commonly known as Fourth Ward, but its original name is Freedmen's Town, given by freed slaves who settled it. Although Freedmen's Town is a nationally registered historical site, and the largest intact freed slave settlement left in the entire nation, its official designation protects only 40 of the 80 blocks or more of the remaining Freedmen's Town area. To honor and to further cumulative efforts to save Freedmen's Town, help is needed to start a "Habitat for History" chapter, integrating student internships, fellowships, and educational grants with work opportunities in the areas of housing reconstruction, legal and historical research, and campus and museum development.
