 Nearly 800 African-Americans left Boone County after the Civil War.  As a result, few freestanding black communities formed in the county as in other regions of the state. ​ Instead many African-Americans appear to have dispersed across the county, as evident in the 1870 census and by the numerous residents labeled "​colored"​ on Lake's 1883 atlas. ​ Census data and oral tradition suggest that many African-Americans became tenant farmers; relatively few owned their own farms. ​ Tradition says black artisans built many houses and barns in the county; no individual craftsmen, however, have yet been identified. Nearly 800 African-Americans left Boone County after the Civil War.  As a result, few freestanding black communities formed in the county as in other regions of the state. ​ Instead many African-Americans appear to have dispersed across the county, as evident in the 1870 census and by the numerous residents labeled "​colored"​ on Lake's 1883 atlas. ​ Census data and oral tradition suggest that many African-Americans became tenant farmers; relatively few owned their own farms. ​ Tradition says black artisans built many houses and barns in the county; no individual craftsmen, however, have yet been identified.
