The Mary & Eliza Freeman Center for History and Community is raising funds to create an African American historic site of national stature in the South End of Bridgeport, Connecticut. The Freeman Houses (circa 1848) are the oldest CT homes built and owned by Blacks. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places for their significance to African American and Women’s history, the Freeman Houses will be the centerpieces of a museum, research, and education center. Every step of the way, the Center will dedicate itself to improving the lives of area residents and providing new educational and economic opportunities. This is our promise.

Thank you for your donation.
