History Happy Hour: Farmville’s Israel Hill Community

February 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Established in the early 1800s, Israel Hill, in the heartland of Virginia, was a communal experiment of limited social and economic freedom for over one hundred formerly enslaved people. Engaging in business opportunities and land ownership, the Israel Hill residents used the legal system and became an integral, viable part of the overall Farmville community.
