About the Society: As the oldest continuously inhabited free Black settlement in the United States, Sandy Ground is a place of great historical significance. Founded in the early 19th Century, the community arose from a settlement of free Blacks from New York, Maryland, and Delaware. By harvesting oysters and farming, this fledgling community was able to thrive and became a safe haven on the Underground Railroad. Today, Sandy Ground is home to 10 families that are descendants of original settlers. The museum educates and inspires the public with exhibitions, photographs, and art documenting the history of Sandy Ground and African Americans. A visit to Sandy Ground guarantees a lesson in our Nation’s history. www.sandyground.wordpress.com
