In 1912, racists white mobs terrorized and forced out approximately 1,100 residents of the Black populated Oscarville, GA. By the 1950s, the empty town of forfeited homes in Oscarville were demolished and buried in water. Now known as Lake Lanier, a hotspot for boating and water sports, less than an hour drive outside of Atlanta. 

Warren, Maryland

Black history in real estate, Black owned real estate brokerage, Black real estate agents
In 1876, free blacks and former slaves purchased land in the small rural area of Martinsburg, later named Warren, MD. There were 30-40 homesteads built, along with a church, the Warren Methodist Episcopal Church, a schoolhouse, the Martinsburg Negro School, and a community center, The Loving Charity Hall.

By 1914, the town contained 900 residents and 1.5 billion gallons of water. In 1922, after several years of legal haggling with the citizens, the Warren, MD was dismantled and disappeared under 23 billion gallons of the Loch Raven Reservoir. Currently, the main source of drinking water for Baltimore, MD.
