Seneca Village, Central Park's Lost African-American Community

Sponsored by the AIA-New York Society, Co-sponsored by PANYC (Professional Archaeologists NYC), and the Columbia Center for Archaeology

AIA Society Event: New York City

Sunday, October 16, 2011 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Location:
Columbia University, Schermerhorn ext 963
Broadway & 116th Street
New York, NY
United States

A talk by excavators Nan Rothschild and Diana Wall, with an opportunity to view some of the artifacts afterward.

Seneca Village was a 19th-century African-American community located in today's Central Park; it was founded in the 1820s by African-Americans who wanted to live in a free and safe space, and who also needed to own land if they were to vote. Irish immigrants joined the community in the 1840s. The Village had 3 churches and a school, its houses were aligned with the grid, and there were more than 260 occupants in the 1850s. Its residents were evicted so the Park could be built. This summer a team of students and researchers from several universities had the opportunity to excavate in the Village. Some of the results will be presented in this talk.
