About

In the late 1860's, freed slaves founded Oberlin, the largest Reconstruction-era black settlement in Wake County. By 1880 some 160 families lived in Oberlin Village, named in tribute to the Ohio college that supported education for African Americans. Oberlin Village established Wilson Temple United Methodist Church in the late 1860's, Oberlin School in 1873, Oberlin Baptist Church in 1880, and Latta University in 1892.
