The Oliver Nestus Freeman Round House is a museum featuring the artifacts that depict the culture and contributions of African Americans to the history and development of Wilson. The house was built in 1946 by Freeman who was a noted local black stone mason. He built this and other houses to help alleviate the housing shortage for GI’s returning from the war. Freeman built a round house that is said to be made of stone. The house is actually built of whatever Freeman could get his hands on including: bottles, tree saplings and string.
