A former slave from Virginia, Brown lived in Society Hill around 1900 and for years was employed by Lawrence Faulkner´s widow to work on her farm. His small house was adjacent to the Faulkner house on this site. A gifted story-teller of black folk tales, Brown´s allegories were posthumously recorded by the Smithsonian Institution.
