Keeping History Alive
Snowden homestead, Clarksburg. This aerial photograph shows the layout of a small black-owned farmstead, one of the most successful in the survey area. The bank barn, (rarely seen on sites surveyed), pasture, two gardens, hog pen, small brooder houses, and other sheds represented the efforts of the Snowden family to raise and preserve much of their own food. For more information, see the Snowden Farm History by Joann Snowden Woodson under the Notable Residents tab.
