Presented by the Lifetime Learning Speakers’ Bureau.

Although not as well established as in the South, the institution of slavery was common on the North Fork from the mid-1600s until abolished by the state in 1827. During that 178-year period, an estimated 550 enslaved lived and labored here. The North Fork Project team will be sharing not just names of the enslaved, but also their stories, their experiences and any other information the team has been able to uncover.
