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.
This area preserves, protects, and interprets the only remaining western town established by African Americans during the Reconstruction Period following the Civil War.
