Event description

Description

Weeksville Heritage Center is a multidisciplinary historic house museum dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African American community of Weeksville, Brooklyn - one of America’s many free black communities.

You're invited to join Weeksville’s Lead Tour Educator for a 1- hour guided tour through the Historic Hunterfly Road Houses.

Existing during Weeksville’s heyday and still intact today, the WHC Historic Hunterfly Road Houses are examples of homes inhabited by free people of color in the urban North. Oriented to an old Native American trail that became an important colonial road, these vernacular style homes were continuously inhabited from their construction until their acquisition by the museum in the 1970s. The Historic Hunterfly Road Houses are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are New York City Landmarks thanks to a grassroots effort powered by the youth of Bedford-Stuyvesant. Each house is interpreted to represent a significant period of Weeksville’s history: the 1870s, early 1900s, and the 1930s.
