         Camilla and Zack Hubert Homesite

  Zack Hubert, a former Warren County slave, moved
here with his family in 1871. The Huberts were among
    the first African-American landowners in central
    Georgia and played influential roles in the area’s
   African-American community. They named their
  homesite Springfield. Zack Hubert married Camilla
Hillman in 1873. Hubert donated land and helped with
 construction for Springfield Church and its school, an
     early provider of technical education to African
   Americans in Georgia. All twelve of the Huberts’
    children were college educated, and two became
  college presidents. The site includes the Log Cabin
      Center, maintained by the Association for the
  Advancement of Negro Country Life. Camilla and
   Zack Hubert are buried beside Springfield Church.
