Claysville & Ruckerville: Paris’ Historically Black Neighborhoods.

Claysville and Ruckerville sprang up following the Civil War as communities for freed slaves. From maps and public lists of the time, we know names and locations of people who lived there and we’ve drawn on community memories to provide details of day to day living. Continues on display through 2015.
