The Parker Academy, founded in 1839, was, evidence suggests, the first school in Ohio, and possibly the country, to offer education to both boys and girls, regardless of race — in the same classroom.
Most importantly this grant enables the research team to hire up to 15 undergraduate students each year to work as research fellows.
The foundation for this project is built on a wide range of community partnerships including that with the Village of New Richmond, with Greg Roberts (the landowner), and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, which is planning an upcoming exhibition based upon the findings.
