Nicodemus Information

Nicodemus Historic Site preserves the only African-American established western town during the Reconstruction Period after the Civil War.

The town of Nicodemus is symbolic of the pioneer spirit of African-Americans who dared to leave the only region they had been familiar with to seek personal freedom and the opportunity to develop their talents and capabilities.
