History versus our present-day values

The land where Blandy Experimental Farm sits was part of a plantation where Black people were enslaved prior to the Civil War. One wing of the building that REU students reside in today was a barracks for enslaved people. Click here to learn about this history and our committment to the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism.
