The Heart of Sol Legare
The residents of this historic black community have been supporting each other through the Seashore Farmers' Lodge, a community aid organization, for more than 100 years. When their circa-1915 building fell into disrepair, one resident made it his mission to preserve the building and with it, his neighborhood's history. Along the way, he and his partners unearthed everything from 1860s-era genealogical records to once-forgotten family heirlooms.
