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 African American stonemason. He built this and other houses to help alleviate the housing shortage for GIs 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.
