Welcome! This website showcases ongoing research into the community of Rosewood, Florida – a majority African American town destroyed during a 1923 race riot. This project draws on archaeology, documentary research, oral history, and interactive media to investigate the history of Rosewood and share it with the public.
The links above provide an introduction to the history of Rosewood, ongoing work to document this history, and efforts to communicate this research with the public. The Data Warehouse provides links to oral history transcripts and census data. The Virtual World is at the heart of public outreach efforts.
Recent research includes addition archaeological work funded by the State of Florida Division of Historical Resources, creation of a more interactive virtual reconstruction of the town titled Rosewood: An Interactive History, and new data!
