Online event … Join Lynette Fisher, Site Administrator at the Hempsted Houses, and Nicole Thomas, Assistant Site Administrator, as they share stories about the Hempsted Historic District.

There are 142 structures in the Hempsted Historic District, with the earliest dating from 1678. This urban neighborhood developed in the mid 19th-century from the subdivision of lands owned by the Hempsted and Holt families. Part of the land was developed by local abolitionists to provide housing for free blacks.
