  History
Continued . . .

In 1943, concerned about the loss of habitat, the federal government purchased the land grant for the protection of migratory birds. Within the Refuge, a 100-year-old hand-hewn ebony fence surrounds tombs and unmarked graves. Visitors today will sometimes find grave sites adorned with flowers from family members who come to the Refuge to pay their respects to ancestors of 60 years past.
