Thirty miles north of Indianapolis just to the east of U.S. 31 on 276th Street in western Jackson Township, Hamilton County, Indiana, stand the remains of an African-American pioneer farm settlement. It was founded in 1835 by free blacks of mixed racial heritage who migrated mostly from North Carolina and Virginia to escape deteriorating racial conditions in the South.  Their goals were the pursuit of economic, educational and religious aspirations with greater freedom and fewer racial barriers. Spend an evening with several Roberts descendants and learn about these African-American pioneers and their descendants that helped to shape Indiana's earliest history. Registration requested but not required.
