In the early 19th century, a large and remarkable neighborhood of newly freed, Black Schenectadians existed on what was then the outskirts of town. In a matter of decades, this Black community would almost completely vanish. In this tour, we hope to explore these streets and rediscover some of what was lost all those years ago. This tour meets outside the Schenectady Public Library Central Branch on Clinton Street.

Admission is $13 or $5 for members.
