Weeksville was a free black community established in Brooklyn before the Civil War. In the 1850s the community had 500 people living in it, about 40% of who had been born in the South.
I went by Weeksville today and took a few photos of the four restored homes there. Weeksville is in what is now called Crown Heights.
