Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md. - Archaeology students have wrapped up their dig behind the Women's Club of Talbot County, which may be home to the nations first free African-American Community.

A University of Maryland official tells WMDT, the site is closing for the season this week. The Easton neighborhood, known as the Hill, may predate the Treme neighborhood in New Orleans by two decades. The Treme is currently recognized as the nation's earliest free black community dating back to 1812.

Students from various institutions, including the University of Maryland and Morgan State, are reportedly testing what they found back at a lab in University of Maryland College Park.
