MONDAY, JANUARY 27TH

The residents of this former industrial and residential community included African Americans, Native Americans, Russians, Poles, Lithuanians, Romanians, Irish, and Italians. This ethnically diverse close knit community called Chicken Hill home.

 

Today the community of Chicken Hill is far from its original housing and cultural form, and the people who lived there have lost their personal, cultural and social past. At present, as a consequence of all this, they also risk losing even that important and precious heritage that one cannot and should not renounce: the memory and collective history of Chicken Hill.

 

The exhibit at TVHS is a 2015 recipient of a Leadership in History Award from the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH).
