[top] History

The Point community was located approximately 4 miles north of Logtown, and centered at the Pearlington-Napoleon Road intersection with The Point Road. This land was part of the Mauthrine Babine Claim and was purchased by the Russ family. The Russ family sold the land to Christian Koch, an anti-slavery Danish immigrant. Over time, the Koch family sold off portions of the land, mostly to African-Americans.

The area appears to have been, at the time NASA acquired it, the African-American community associated with Logtown. At the intersection of Pearlington-Napoleon Road and The Point Road, there were two African-American Churches. The Big Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church was located there along with a refreshment stand referred to as a "snack shop". Also situated at the intersection was the Bogue Homa Baptist Church. Not far from the location of these Churches, there still lies an active cemetery called "The Point Cemetery".

There are a variety of Surnames located in the cemetery which has not been completely indexed. Of the names located there are Christmas, Young, Lee, Vaughn and Acker.
