Free African Americans have lived and worked in this neighborhood since colonial times. In the 1840s both blacks and whites bought home (some still standing) through the efforts of abolitionist and developer, Savillion Haley. Travelers on the Underground Railroad were aided at the nearby Joshua Hempsted House (1678), an abolitionist home. The district has remained an integrated neighborhood with, among other institutions, the Shiloh Baptist Church on Garvin Street; a street named for 20th century civil rights leader, the Reverend Albert Garvin.
