“Elizabeth Harvey First Free Black School
Preserving history not only tells us where we’ve been, but shows us the direction in which we are going.
My home town played an important role in not only the Underground Railroad established by abolitionists as a means to combat the evils of slavery… But was on the front lines in civil rights as is evidenced by having established the first free Blacks and Native American school in not just Ohio, but in the Northwest Territory.

Black History is American history… Come celebrate this Septembers Fall Festival open house! Sat. Sept. 16 from 11 am – 6 pm – Harveysburg Fall Fest and open house at the Elizabeth Harvey First Free Black School – 23 North Street, Harveysburg, Ohio
.. Hope to see you there!!

Or view the museum throughout the year by appointment only.

I might add that besides the obvious significance of the building and grounds , there too can be found here a repository of Harveysburg and Massie Township’s history as well.

(Note:
Not one person has ever profited financially as we are strictly a volunteer group; relying on donations alone… 100% of which goes towards historical preservation, gas and electric bill, building maintenance​, etc.)”
