Much of the land now protected by Ivy Creek Natural Area was farmed by freed slaves and their descendants for nearly a century. A thenmodern barn built in the 1930s remains as testament to the land’s agricultural heritage. It now hosts environmental-education exhibits; the surrounding 215 acres, largely reforested, are home to a host of native wildlife.
