The Merrick-Moore CDC, in it’s diverse community exists for charitable and educational purposes, to improve the overall quality of life for the poor, underprivileged and disenfranchised, by strengthening the bonds amongst our residents.
The Merrick-Moore Community, originally the Millie Rone Hall Estate on the Roane Plantation, runs along Cheek Road (which was “Fish Dam Road”). Our community was officially developed by V.F Pope and H.L Noell in 1947, with the first Black family to purchase land and build a home in 1940.
Many of the first residents to purchase lots and build were veterans of WWII who were released from the duty of service between 1945 – 1946. There were many families who purchased multiple lots, most being brothers, sisters, parents and others who had come from farms before the war.
