Located at the corners of the Zion lands
and Polk plantations, this area became a
natural settlement for former slaves. For
100 years after the
end of the Civil
War, the Canaan
Community was a
vibrant, crowded,
African-American
neighborhood.
The old Canaan School House, restored
by the community, is a testament to that
period. Also notice the historic cemetery.
