The Heritage Center at the Jefferson School wants to set up a local African American Trail. It hopes to designate sites that are important to the community’s history from colonial times through the civil rights era. The Heritage Center and its partners (pictured) will host an event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 12th. It plans to get researchers with a focus on land ownership, politics and civil rights, along with enslaved or free pre-Civil War communities or cemeteries. The event organizers note both Monticello and Montpelier are already connected to historic trails.
