 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.

 The families who remained in Boone County concentrated themselves in the [[Burlington]],​ [[Union]] and [[Walton]] areas. Names such as Utz, Baker, Webb, and Sleet reflect back to the former slave holders, as well as, the white heritage of these families. The families who remained in Boone County concentrated themselves in the [[Burlington]],​ [[Union]] and [[Walton]] areas.
