WELCOME TO AFRICAN AMERICAN LEGACY PROJECT OF NORTHWEST OHIO

Founded in 2004, The African American Legacy Project of Northwest Ohio believes we help shape the future.   Through research and preservation we document the past and present, and share our work with the widest audiences possible. We invite you to see things anew through the lens of our continually growing collections. You’ll learn more than you ever thought possible. Sometimes we amaze ourselves!

Looking very dapper in his straw hat, Mr. Cornelius Edwoods,  was one of the first African Americans to publish a newspaper  [The Observer]  in this community.

HISTORY REVISITED

We're continually growing; the more we know, the more you know.

The Belmont Enterprise was the first African American owned and operated bowling alley.  A rental hall which doubled as a skating rink occupied the 2nd floor.
