The struggle for emancipation did not end at the Civil War but continued on through the period known as Reconstruction. Oakley Cabin, once the center of an African America roadside community struggling to survive and build a new life, now serves as a living museum for this era. The log cabin provides hands-on historical experiences through hearth cooking, crafts, and other educational opportunities for individuals, groups and schools.
