Nicodemus National Historic Site

This project is meant to increase the understanding and appreciation by the National Park Service for the people, places and organizations that contributed materially to the creation and continued existence of Nicodemus as the only remaining western town established by African-Americans during the Reconstruction period following the Civil War, and to assist the NPS in the preservation of related resources and in the interpretation of Nicodemus for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations.This project originated from the desire of the NPS to better understand the history of the Nicodemus community and the legislative requirement for the NPS to work cooperatively with the affiliated Nicodemus-founders’ descendants.
