Since the 1830s the Tall Timbers Research Station land in northern Leon County, Florida, supported agricultural pursuits ranging from antebellum cotton plantations to twentieth-century quail hunting to fire management studies. The continual thread from the 1830s to the 1940s is the black worker, who evolved from slave to tenant farmer. This study will concentrate on the continuity of occupancy on this land of selected black families from 1865 to 1900.
