Every Saturday this September guests can experience the premiere of Black Pioneers: Roberts Settlement in Prairietown that is part exhibition and part live interpretation. In this exceptional addition to our museum theater, interpretation and exhibition programming, you'll hear the courageous story of free people of color who emigrated to Hamilton County from North Carolina in the 1830s. The play focuses on their moment of arrival to their newly purchased land in the northwest section of Hamilton County.
Interactive exhibit elements include video with historic images from Roberts Settlement families, interspersed with images from current Roberts Settlement descendants. You'll even have a chance to talk directly with an interpreter about the settlement's history and explore maps, timelines, and historical papers, to learn about the experience of free people of color moving west in the early 19th century.
