The Tillery History House museum stands on former plantation land worked by generations of African-American slaves. After the Civil War, black family farmers and sharecroppers lived and labored on the former plantation lands of Tillery.

Approximately 65 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted his New Deal Resettlement Program, offering black families the opportunity to purchase land. Today the History House museum is housed in a former Resettlement home and provides a unique educational experience for visitors of all ages to not only learn more about our nation’s history, but to become inspired and involved with one community’s determinations and triumphs.
