The Heritage Society is excited to celebrate Black History Month!
A museum docent will educate you on the lives of African Americans in Houston and Texas in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, before and after the Civil War, while touring the Kellum-Noble House, the Yates House and the Fourth Ward Cottage. New research conducted on the 1847 Kellum-Noble house has revealed the names of several enslaved men, women and children who lived and worked on the property. A history of this home discusses urban slavery in Houston, whereas the Yates House and the Fourth Ward Cottage tell about life after Emancipation in the community known as Freedmen's Town established by African-Americans.
