Comments
A former resident of Williford recalls that blacks attempting to live in Williford usually left and settled in Imboden. "I don't know about it being an unqualifiably "good" place for blacks, but our staff historian does recall its school having a handful of blacks in it in the 1960s, the same time period that blacks were being mightily encouraged not to settle in Williford." Imboden may have become a sundown town later.
