The Hyde Park Visual Environment Committee invites you to discover a historic treasure located in the Village of Hyde Park. The New Guinea Community was a transient community of two to three generations of formerly enslaved people and others who initially resided in humble abodes during pre-civil war era. Some residents constructed homes in the village proper within a generation while some moved to other opportunities elsewhere.

During the month of February 2024, the Town of Hyde Park Historical Society will be displaying an exhibition of artifacts from the New Guinea Community discovered during an archaeological investigation done in the early 2000’s. The collection will be on display at the Hyde Park Historical Society’s museum located at 4389 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park, on every Saturday in February from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.

The Hyde Park Visual Environment Committee, sponsor of the event, and other community organizations, in conjunction with the Town of Hyde Park, is continuing a journey begun centuries ago by illuminating the history and significance of these heroic people.

Come celebrate the resilience of formerly enslaved people who built a community against all odds.
