Lecture & General Meeting,

September 27, 2023 at 7 pm

Paul Schopp Presents: “The Black Enclave of Milford, c. 1825-Present” 

At one time South Jersey featured more than 100 enclaves of free blacks in self-sustaining towns or smaller communities. Many of these emerged from or enabled stops on the Underground Railroad, often with a degree of support from local Quaker meeting houses. Over the years a few of these, such as Lawnside, have managed to maintain an independent identity. Others, such as nearby Saddlertown or Timbuctoo in Westampton, have benefited from recent study and efforts to bring their history to light. Most, though, are threatened with extinction from memory, unknown even to most of those who live within their boundaries.

Milford, later known as Kresson, is one such place whose story is threatened, a fate that historian Paul Schopp has long fought to prevent.  Please join us on Wednesday, September 27 at 7 PM at the Lutheran Church on Wayne Avenue to learn and to join in the effort to preserve an important part of our local history.

*This event is free, and the church asked that we contribute to their pantry with nonperishable food items and paper products.
