In 1860, Sumner County's population of African descent consisted of 7,700 slaves. After America's Civil War, emancipated slaves settled on this high hill and road in the Rockland Community. According to oral tradition, Free Hill Road received its name when freed slaves moved to this area and they were its only residents. In 1993, Free Hill Road was annexed into City the of Hendersonville and area roads were named for some of the original families.
