Free Blacks of Israel Hill

The low, gray rain clouds of early Sunday morning cleared away to reveal a high, bright blue fall sky over those attending the unveiling of the Virginia historical highway marker at the foot of Israel Hill in Farmville.  A year ago the seeds were planted at a Farmville-Prince Edward Historical Society board meeting for the erection of a marker commemorating the citizens and location of Israel Hill.  Within weeks, forms were being submitted to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.  Jo D. Smith, representing the historical society, went before the Farmville Town Council and the Prince Edward County Board of Supervisors seeking their equal financial partnership with the society in the recognition of Israel Hill.  On Sunday, September 27, the Virginia Highway Historical Marker I 14-a Free Blacks of Israel Hill, which sprouted from those seeds, was unveiled.
